The Ekiti State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated Senator Biodun Olujimi (Ekiti South senatorial district) on her elevation to the position of Senate Minority Leader.
The PDP Caucus in the Senate last Tuesday announced her elevation to the exalted party’s position in the Senate following the resignation of Senator Goodwill Akpabio, who defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Olujimi, who represents Ekiti South senatorial district, was the Deputy Senate Minority Whip before her new position.
In a statement issued in Ado-Ekiti wednesday by the party state Publicity Secretary, Jackson Adebayo, the party said Olujimi’s elevation was well deserved.
The party also commended Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, for supporting women to aspire to high offices in the party and in the state.
“We heartily rejoice with a woman of substance, Senator Olujimi, on her elevation in the Senate. While she served as Deputy Minority Whip, she lived up to the expectations of not only her constituents, but also many people across the country who know her as a woman whose voice cannot not be silenced.
“Among her peers in the Senate, she stands tall and her contributions are always valuable. In her senatorial district, she has done a lot to improve the quality of life of her constituents.
“Her landmark projects dot communities in the district. We pray that God should give her the grace to further excel in her current position and take her further the ladder of success in life,” he said.
