A statement by her Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Olamilekan Olusada stated that Akande-Sadipe, who doubles as the Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Diaspora Affairs, also distributed cash, cows, rams and rice to Muslim faithful amongst party chieftains, community and traditional leaders within her constituency.
In a Sallah message to Muslim faithful, she said, “On this special day as we celebrate Eid El-Kabir, I felicitate with my Muslim sisters and brothers, may Almighty Allah bless our nation and homes. May He fill our lives with peace and joy.
