Governor Uzodimma’s Special Adviser on Diaspora in her outstanding speech delivered in Wolverhampton Council Chambers, effortlessly listed the several reasons why Councillor Sandra Samuels should be made the Deputy Mayor of Wolverhampton.

Celia Osakwe-Hibbert reminded Mr. Mayor and the people of Wolverhampton that her  nominee has already received an “OBE” award from the Queen of England.
