She blessed God for Ondo state’s achievement on Maternal and Child Health and further revealed her satisfaction in the 75% reduction in maternal mortality ratio in the state which she described as God’s doing.

She also decried a situation where children are abandoned for whatever reason and urged mothers to stop the ungodly act.

According to her “Every child is born different and he has the right to life and fulfil his God’s given potentials. No one woman, under any condition, should abandon the baby she carried for 9 months”

Mrs Mimiko enjoined all the good people of Ondo state to show love and understanding and join hands together in 2016 to further pray for the wellbeing of the state in the New year.
