Ajimobi said the current economic recession in the country was a passing phase and expressed optimism that there would soon be a turnaround of the economy for the better.
She lauded the efforts of the present administration in its women oriented programmes and policies in the state.
Ajimobi, who reiterated the importance of prayers and fasting said that WIN, had served as a platform for shaping the state through consistent and strategic prayers.
Also, Pastor Oyenike Etim-Bassey of Lighthouse Bible Church, Abeokuta, Ogun, urged Nigerians to put their trust in God and continue to contribute their quotas toward the nation’s socio-economic development.

“The plans that God has for the country can never be changed, God is unchanging in the object of his love, Nigeria is the object of his love, “she said.
