Mama Toroyor commended the kingmakers for giving her the opportunity to serve her people.
She pledged to intensify education on reproductive health, to prevent sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies among adolescents.

She lamented that some parents did not allow their daughters, who dropped out of school as a result of pregnancy to continue their education after giving birth.
Mama Toroyor said “it is to help address these challenges that I have accepted the challenge, and promised to unite the people towards the development of the area”.
