The monarch disclosed that she was a part of camping activities in Minna and did everything other corps members were expected to do apart from domestic works.
She added that NYSC officials in the camp were aware of her identity but her fellow corps members were not because she blended so well with them.
“History was made today. I went to camp in minna paiko even though NYSC officials were informed of my coming, my fellow corpers didn’t know my real identity because I blended so well. And I did everything all Corp members did with the exemption of domestic work though,” she added.
The Oluboropa extended her sincere appreciation to God, her parents, siblings, her chiefs and the people of Iboropa who all supported her.
