Ogunlola noted that she has sponsored three bills that have scaled through the first reading, which will impact positively on the wellbeing of Nigerians.
The Catholic Bishop of Ekiti Diocese, Most Rev. Felix Ajakaye, commended Ogunlola for being a true representative of the people that elected her to the green chamber, saying the people felt her impact in the past two years.
Ajakaye, represented by Rev. Emmanuel Akingbade, advised Ogunlola not to relent in her efforts to bring development to the constituency, urging other lawmakers to emulate her.
The Ekiti Central Senatorial leader, Elder Odekulodu Jekoyemi, and Commissioner for Chieftaincy and Local Government, Prof. Adio Folayan, described Ogunlola as a promise keeper.
