“My husband is somebody that carries everybody along and you can always access him through me. He will bring better future for your children, provide good roads , hospitals and employment for women and youths, a situation that has been lacking over the years in Nasarawa State”
“Ombugadu is a man of his words and when ever he says something, he makes sure he does it and accomplishes that mission. I want to assure you that Nasarawa would be better and Ombugadu is the man that will bring a change to the state,” she said.
