Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State on Wednesday received showers of encomium for his performance and a challenge to do more when he paid a courtesy visit to the Oba of Benin, Omo n’Oba Erediauwa, to present his scorecard in the first year of his second tenure of eight years.
Expressing satisfaction with the governor’s scorecard, Oba Erediauwa said he would not relent in praying for Mr. Oshiomhole and the success of his administration.
He said, “You have done very well in all that you have done for the state. I can say this openly, I often pray for you to our ancestors to keep you going, and to keep your treasury going. I want to say you should keep the flag flying.
“All the roads you have done and are still doing. I want to thank you very much. There is one road you want to do which is very close to me. Adesogbe, I hear you want to repair it and I thank you for it”.
Speaking earlier, Oshiomhole said government would sustain the pace of work in the three senatorial districts.
He said, “When I came in for the second term, I did promise that we would continue with the projects we have started and when those are completed then we take on fresh ones. We have completed the Airport Road now and it is a beautiful sight, complete with six lanes with purpose-built bus stops”.
