“What Bashiru has done is one of the ways to help a representative achieve his duty to his people and we have to appreciate him for deeming it fit to have interest in Caroline’s total development and I will ensure that I do everything within the capacity God has granted me to ensure that she did not only achieve her dreams but also continue bringing glory and honour to her family and Ikorodu
“I’m very proud of her academic achievements and that was why I celebrated during the 2016 edition of mini-marathon and now, she has erased every doubt trailing her WASSCE results by also going ahead to record another outstanding score in JAMB, which further reinforces our reasons for celebrating her in the first place.
“We are interested in celebrating you at the end of every session in your University and we are also looking forward to your graduation with distinction.
“Aside the other plans I have for you which I will not disclose until it materializes, I will also ensure that our representative at the federal level, my colleagues at the State Assembly and the Ikorodu Local Government Sole Administrator not only redeemed their pledges to you now that you’ve opened two bank accounts, but also that they are part of your educational development. But you must not derail from the positive path” Hon. Agunbiade enjoined Caroline.
In his own contribution, Hon.

Mr Oluwadamilare while speaking on behalf of her daughter and family, thanked the lawmaker and others that have shown interests in her daughter’s development.
