Kate Henshaw said in August  that she wants to follow Arnold Schwarzenegger’s footsteps and return to acting after serving the people.

She promised that she would not spend more than 8 years as a member of the House of Representative.

Kate Henshaw confessed that she does not have the financial power to match politicians who have been in the system for many years, but declared that she is going with God and her.

By @glazedlens "4 years ago I called Kate wondering what she was doing at a polling station calling out names... she asked who called to give me this info. "Wo I came to vote but it was chaotic so I decided to help the workers organise so that people will not wait long in the hot sun". That is how my client hired herself as a volunteer for the next few weeks at the polling station in Lekki. There are so many stories like this where Kate volunteers herself and time to worthwhile causes without publicising it. Suffice it to say that I am not surprised that she has chosen this path. She is naturally a people person and has the energy to pursue this goal. I support her aspirations. Good luck KDGR8" I THANK YOU MILDRED FOR THE SUPPORT. YOU HAVE MADE AN IMPACT IN MY LIFE AND I HAVE LEARNED A LOT. GOD BLESS YOU IMMENSELY. AMEN.
