The member of the Ekiti Assembly who represents Ikole Constituency 2 remarked, “I am overwhelmed with delight and humbled by these accomplishments. Ekiti State House is quickly gaining reputation in national politics and leadership, as shown by its appointment as Vice Chairman of the Conference of Nigerian Speakers.
“This further indicated that we are being recognized for our efforts to transform Ekiti’s administration via the enactment of quality, populist legislation that has a high propensity for good governance and has the potential to favorably impact the lives of our people.
“The time has come for the legislative branch to demonstrate that they are dependable allies of the executive branch. To make Nigeria great, it is essential to run an efficient legislative branch that can easily coexist with the executive branch. The effectiveness of laws passed by the government is a major factor in the challenge of creating a virulent country.
“I appreciate the respect and camaraderie shown by my colleagues at both the national and zonal levels. I won’t violate the faith and trust placed in my ability to be a steadfast team player. I vouch that I will be.
“I am grateful for Governor Biodun Oyebanji’s and my colleagues’ unwavering support in the Ekiti State House of Assembly. This served as the starting point for achieving this incredible achievement. Never again will I take this for granted.
