Go And Die - Oshiomole Tells A Widow! by Sermwell(m): 11:37am On Nov 28, 2013

Where is the 'human face' in governance?

Woke up with strength and vigour this morning and was up to face today with all hopes and aspirations but was sad & almost started crying after watching this video.

I've been an advocate of leaders been strong at all time with will power to carry out leadership responsibilities. And that emotional leaders don't go far but certainly not this way.

In leadership and governance, there's a place for 'Human face' no matter the circumstances. Widows to the best of my knowledge are integral part of our society and if we don't apply human face when dealing with them, am afraid we are far from getting there as a people.

Two wrongs indeed can never make things right and as such, can't fathom why the Governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams A. O. will treat this widow like this and even tell her to go and die when she's struggling to provide food for her family. I think it would've been far better to make her pay a fine for her wrong doing than this humiliation.

The agony of the poor in our society......

VIDEO: Unkindest Cut Of All-Governor Adams Oshiomhole's Mean Words To A Poor Widow


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vw43BVPasDM

This video shows Governor Adams Oshiomhole ostensibly leading officials of the state to sanitize the city of Benin, the Edo State capital. In the course of his tour of duty, he came across a widow roadside hawker.

The poor widow knelt before the imperial governor, a former labour leader, begging for her little means of livelihood to be saved. She pleaded that she's widow. But her pleas fell on the governor's deaf ear. In what could be regarded as the most unkindest cut of all, the governor said the widowed woman should "go and die"!

It is one thing to enforce the law without fear or favour but quite another to do so in a mean-spirited fashion.
As a widower himself, I hope Governor Oshiomole rues the day he uttered the words "go and die" to a hapless street hawker.

That is very bad of the Governor. He needs to apologise.

This is what you get after 14 year rule of PDP.

I haven't cried in a long time, I had tears in my eyes this morning. I was pained seeing that lady. If anyone can find me the crying widow, I have a $500 for her to launch her business again.

In as much as I abhor our peoples indiscipline and stubbornness and not heeding to warnings.

I think this video of Oshiomole ignoring the cry of the poor is detestable, callous and clear case of wickedness.

The Bible says…

“Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard”. Proverbs 21:13 (KJV)

Can't believe Oshiomhole said what he did. As if his words were not shocking enough, his attitude throughout the video appeared callous, detached and cold. Disappointing to see. Oshiomhole should be ashamed of his totally insensitive and heartless conduct.

One can try to excuse the act of this man for some gimmicks like 'sacrifices for the greater good of the community' but, the approach and the choice of words by the governor is nothing short of wickedness, callousness, insensitivity and thoughtlessness to say the least. He should be ashamed of himself for uttering such words. He is not expected to say such things to anybody, let alone a widow. angry angry

Initially I did not here where Oshiomole said "you are a widow... GO AND DIE." I can’t believe the acclaimed freedom fighter for the masses can open his mouth and alter such word. ...GO AND DIE.
Oh my God, this guy is mean.
Where is the fear of the Lord in the heart of our Leaders?
Our Leaders have lost torch of human feelings.
No wonder…:
Gen. 6:5 "And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually."
Prov. 3:7 “Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.”
Rom. 1:22 “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,”
Jer. 17:9 "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?"
