THE 3rd year anniversary celebration of Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo state kicked off yesterday with an interdenominational service with Oshiomhole assuring the people of the state of more transformation in the years ahead.
Speaking at the service held at Idia College, Benin City, Oshiomhole stated that he would also ensure that there are no abandoned projects, asking the people of the state to continue to support the government in its developmental efforts.
But in a swift reaction, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media, Mr Tony Iyare, dismissed the PDP allegation that the governor earmarked N3b for the event. “Do you know what N3billion is? If the Governor has that amount of money, he will immediately think of another road to tar or build another hospital or school.”
While commending the three years of Oshiomhole, the Bishop urged the Governor to continue in his efforts, calling on the people of the state to eschew violence so as to enjoy the developmental efforts of the Governor. He however admonished the Governor to shun praise singers who according to him, were only around to see what they can benefit from the system.
