Mimiko reiterated the state’s commitment to welfare of the people as demonstrated in different programmes including free health care and free shuttle buses for the primary and secondary school students in the state.
She said that the 2014 Sallah celebration was special because it came with Nigeria's Independence anniversary and her husband’s 60th birthday.
Alhaja Fausat Aliu, the state president of FOMWAN, commended the governor’s wife for the yearly gift and appealed to the governor to consider more women for political appointment.
