Honourable Akande-Sadipe also reaffirmed her commitment to delivering more dividends of democracy to the people of her constituency.
She pledged to rededicate herself to the service of the people, adding that serving as a House of Representatives member in the administration of President-elect, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu means good tidings for her constituency.
She said: “My dear people of Oluyole Federal Constituency, permit me to thank God for this victory. I almost gave-up, and lost hope but you stood by me.
“I appreciate all members of Oluyole Federal Constituency for the show of solidarity and love as was seen and exhibited during the course of the February 25 election and this supplementary election.
“This victory looked like such an impossible task, especially after what happened during the first election, and then my mother died. I could not see my mother, because I was trying to protect my mandate.”
“As I have been re-elected to serve you at Abuja, I will put in my very best to push our cause before the house to ensure that the dividends of democracy and opportunities available to my office reaches my constituency,” she said.
