On Saturday, October 22, she wrote:

“I am fully committed to nation building and completely loyal to the Federal Republic of Nigeria as well as its leaders. I count myself privileged to serve our dear country as an ambassador of change.

However, family comes first and as such my decision is borne out of the love for my ailing husband who needs the support of his family. God bless Nigeria.”

She also appreciated the president for counting her worthy to serve Nigeria in the capacity of an ambassador.

“It is a hard decision I had to take, but I have to, because he is my primary responsibility,” she added.
