This is a major call to service, and from this moment on, I solemnly declare that I shall be fully committed to serving the people of Lagos State. I will listen attentively to your concerns, expectations and admonitions.”

I personally believe promises should be kept, and I intend to stick with it as I work with all stakeholders to ensure Accord Party remains a party that delivers on its promises,” she further said.
