A two-time former Governor of the defunct Midwest region and old Bendel State, Dr. Samuel Ogbemudia, has lauded Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State, saying he has done well in eight years.
Ogbemudia gave the commendation yesterday when he visited the outgoing Edo governor at Government House, Benin City.
According to the octogenarian, he could spend a full day if allowed, to talk about the good records of the outgoing governor.
“I am here to thank His Excellency, Comrade Oshiomhole for taking care of me throughout his tenure. People have come to me to ask, what have I got to say about Comrade Oshiomhole and most importantly what have I got to say about his achievements, what he has done, and my answer is simple: If I spend the whole day narrating what he has done, there is no newspaper or television house that will have time for that…he has done everything that needed to be done by anybody occupying this position for eight years…”
Responding, Oshiomhole said he had many things to thank Ogbemudia for, “So, if we have done anything, we had a living example in your person, and I can never thank you enough”.
The elder statesman was accompanied on the visit by his wife, Yetunde and his son Samuel Ogbemudia II.
Gov. Oshiomhole will hand over to his successor, Godwin Obaseki on Saturday, November 12, 2016.
