“I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’

“Pls continue to support your states’ governments to preach peace and togetherness no matter the class, religion and tribe because that is the only way to make progress together and to build a better country, Nigeria.
“God does not recognize all those differences that are common among the people because He is God and has created us with diverse differences to praise him not to destroy one another”
“I can only pray for you all to excel and increase on every good side”
“I am only a channel that God has used to discover the need to have SWS as a body that will carry women on its shoulders and galvanise how women will not only be appointed but be elected into leadership positions in this country by God’s grace. We shall get there” Barr. Adetona added.
