She promised them adequate representation and more visible development to the area, charging them to remain united regardless of their religious differences. 

The Olota of Ota, Oba Abdulkabir Obalanlege, in his remarks urged all son and daughters of Ota to continue to embrace peace,  come together as one, love one another, be their brothers keeper and desist from any religious or ethnic violence 

In his sermon, Chief Imam of Ota, Imam Sadiq Buhari Aladi, represented by Alhaji  Abdulwasiu Akinboyede, thanked Almighty Allah for His benevolence and grace in the life of muslim faithfuls, urging muslim faithfuls to renew their relationship with their families, neighbours, friends and show love to one another.

While praying for the state government for a prosperous tenure, he acknowledged the support of the Deputy Governor towards the growth of Islam in Ota and its environs.
