Financial Crisis: Oshiomole Lauds Buhari Over Equal Treatment Of All States


Edo State governor, Mr Adams Oshiomhole, has hailed President Mohammadu Buhari over his handling of the financial meltdown facing the states.

According to him, the president despite being elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has shown love, equity and justice to all the states, unlike his predecessor Goodluck Jonathan, whom he claimed favoured governors of the then Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) states.

Oshiomole, who spoke to State House correspondents following the meeting between the president and governors, revealed that the PDP governors got N2 billion each from the Ecological Fund without a dime going to the opposition states during Jonathan’s tenure.

He thanked President Buhari for intervening in the dwindling economy of the states without prejudice.
