Remember my post on Gov. Oshiomole and the widow some days back titled:Speechless: Gov.Oshiomole Why? http://wp.me/p3wTbK-w2 ?
Honestly,I wrote the piece in anger and with a heavy heart. But i am so glad and happy that the people’s governor had realised his wrongs and mistakes and had promptly invited the widow,Mrs.Joy Ifije to the Edo State Government House where he profusely apologised for his uncomplimentary remarks of :”If you are a widow,Go and die”
The Governor went ahead to give Mrs. Ifije,a whooping sum of 2Million naira and an automatic employment .
Am using this medium to say a big welldone to Sir.Adams Oshiomole for realising that he is human after all and for apologising.
Indeed, you are and still is,amongst my favourite governors so far.
Governor Adams Oshiomhole (right) and a Benin widow whom he upbraided penultimate week for blocking the road with her goods, Mrs Joy Ifije drink tea during a breakfast meeting today 2nd December 2013. With them is the widow’s son, Bright Ifije.
God comes down to bless his people in the most unassuming ways and disguise. This widow’s tears is now her joy!
