Now we have come to the top of an extended journey. A really rigorous and eventful one. The individuals of Ibadan South East 2 have spoken. They spoke loudly and clearly.
The journey of the final one 12 months has been halted, and I thanks all for standing by me. For believing in my imaginative and prescient and for throwing your weight behind me in essential moments. I’ll by no means take this important assist as a right.
The first election has come and gone and I’ve been made to consider and settle for the result in good destiny.
