Oshiomhole has transformed Edo - IBB
Former military president, General Ibrahim Babangida, said at the weekend that he is not surprised by what he called the rapid transformation in Edo State under Governor Adams Oshiomhole, saying the development is consistent with the governor’s antecedents.
Also, former Governor of Lagos State, and national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu said the Edo governor has impacted positively on the state.
Speaking at a ceremony in Igueben, Edo State, to mark the 70th birthday of Chief Tom Ikimi, one-time minister of foreign affairs, Babangida said: “I want to pay special homage to my comrade governor, Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole, who has been doing so much to transform Edo State.
“As a regular visitor to Edo State, I can feel and inhale the impact of good governance not only on the faces of the people but also on infrastructure. I saw several red roof schools on my way here; I saw well cultivated lawns, walk-ways and beautiful road networks. I saw expansions on roads that were hitherto narrow. In fact, the feeling of a transformed Edo State is palpable. I am not surprised that all these are happening in Edo State, given the antecedents of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole. With courage and strong political will coupled with the support of political leaders like Ikimi, it is understandable why the infrastructural architecture of Edo State has assumed this enviable height,” he said.
