We will ensure transparency, integrity and loyalty to the nation Nigeria because we deserve to grow this company.

“The Nigerian women are very happy. We have gotten a lot of congratulations because they are excited and all this is thanks to the President for remembering the Nigerian women, we thank him”, said Okadigbo.
