While congratulating the governor for his forthcoming inauguration, he tasked him not to relent in appointing more women of calibre into his cabinet.

” We shall appreciate it if Mr Governor would appoint women in prestigious position, saddle with more responsibilities. Women were found to be doing well in any position they find themselves. We are always unique and provide quality leadership”.

She commended the prompt response of the governor to security matters in the state, adding that the quit order of the governor was a right steps taken to rid the state of kidnappers masquerading as herdsmen in the forest.

Pastor Aborode also congratulated Dr Okonjo Iweala for her new position as the Managing Director of World Trade Organization (WTO), noting that women in the country are going places and representing the country well.

She charged all the women in the state to always put in their best in their chosen career, saying women in Ondo State are the next to be celebrated.
