She lauded her Widow’s care palliative and the Solayo kits initiatives, which cut across all women in the State, regardless of political parties, religion or ethnic group affiliations.

“The palliative package during COVID-19, the Widow’s care package where seven out of eleven widows in our midst benefitted from. A loan benefit given to one of our women. Solayo kit given to some of our pregnant women and wrappers, among other food items during FOWOSO Summit”, she hinted.
