“We kindly urge friends and well-wishers of the comrade governor to direct the resources planned to procure gifts and place advertorials for him to the foundation set up in memory of his late wife, Clara Oshiomhole Health Foundation for Maternal and Child Care, GTB Plc, Sapele Road Benin City,” the statement said.

“The comrade governor derives joy in seeing the poor happy; this is the best birthday gift he can ever ask for,” the statement said.
