Oshiomhole pledges to work till last day in office



Even with politicking and electioneering campaigns kicking off, Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomhole yesterday said he would continue to work till his last day in office.

He stated this while inspecting several on going projects in the state, which he said, would be completed before he hands over to his successor.

The governor and his team including some journalists were in Igbinaduwa Street where an 8 kilometre road is being constructed on top of an underground tunnel. “With this road, when they drive on it, nobody will know there is a tunnel underneath, that is why I think the public should know.” He was also at Upper Siliko, where construction was once said to be impossible because of the presence of mermaid.

He said the appreciation and prayers of the common people in the streets kept him going, despite criticism by some elites. According to him,

“When you see those old men and women praying from their hearts, the combined powers of those prayers will completely neutralise any principality, anything planned by my opponents. And when you access the comments, where will any other party get votes in this state? How is it going to happen, with or without card readers, in every department of the state, how?

Continuing, he said, “The much talked about 75million dollars, we have not touched it. So this is not the result of any loan. This month, we have paid salaries. We will continue to give our all to the people.”
