He particularly expressed his appreciation to INEC and the security agents for the credible and peaceful by-election.
He noted that the outcome of the by-election shows that Kwarans are now determined to liberate themselves from the age long status quo that has sadly promoted poverty instead of prosperity for the good people of Kwara state.
