"For Awolowo Dosumu, she is passionate about God and this country. Her passion is not for selfish reason but one that benefits humanity."

Awolowo-Dosumu lauded CAN for organising the thanksgiving service which she described as "great evangelism."

She said that God works in many ways to keep his handiwork.

 "God has done so much and will continue to do so much for us, that is why we have to continue thanking Him for seen and unseen things," she said.

She described her investiture as call to service and promised to do more for the propagation of God's gospel.
