Re: "Go And Die" - Governor Oshiomhole Tells A Widow (Video)

Benin – Gov. Adams Oshiomhole of Edo on Friday apologised for the comments he made to a widow in Benin during an inspection tour on Mission Road, in the state capital, a fortnight ago.

Oshiomhole said that he now regretted the comments which had become the subject of discourse in the social media.

The Governor, however, noted that he made the comments in anger.

Oshiomhole’s apology was made when the leadership of the Federation of Muslim Women’s Association of Nigeria (FOMWAN), paid him a courtesy visit in Benin.

He noted that though the challenge of modern times had bestowed on the shoulders of some women and single mothers the status of bread winners of their homes, such should not be used as an accuse to flout the laws.

The Governor urged the Muslim women leaders to use their offices to propagate the essence of healthy living among children and women in the nation and the need to maintain proper sanitary conditions in their neighbourhoods.

Oshiomhole lamented that the challenge of widowhood had also exposed children to different temptations, adding that there was the need for society to be careful, to avoid unwittingly creating more problems for the nation.

He noted that money was not the best thing that guaranteed ones happiness, “but honesty and selfless service.

The Governor added that if Muslims and Christians were adequately committed to their religious doctrines, the world would be a better place.

He urged the women to propagate the message of Islam through the nooks and crannies of the nation, and to also inculcate the values of honesty in their followers.

Oshiomhole, however, assured the association of government’s support in ensuring that its present leadership made remarkable progress and also consolidated on the successes of their predecessors.

Earlier, the FOMWAN National President, Hajia Amina Omoti, urged the state government to look into the issue of the teaching of Islamic Religious Studies in public schools in the state.

Omoti also solicited for government’s moral and financial support for the effective running of the association.

Surprise!!! Was expecting him to say it was PDP that
inserted that spirit into him at that moment and his
common condemnation. Lol. That was OK though for admitting he was wrong

Says who?

Do you want to tell me that you have never at any point in time said or did anything you never regretted?

The man has apologized for his uncouthness. That's fine by me.

As for those saying she wasn't hawking, I don't believe Oshiomole just decided to attack her without her having to have broken one law or the other which would have landed her in jail by now in more developed countries, widow or no widow.

What is this one saying?
Can't u for once call a spade by its name?
Must u defend Oshiomole even it means trauncating or upturning truth and facts?
Oshiomole f-ucked up big time and u must accept it.

He should tender a written apology letter to the woman and Edo people in general for his uncouth behaviour. Not only that,he should give the woman a monetary compensation. Next time he shouldn't talk to people any how because he's a governor.

its obvious you're a sycophant. She didn't break any law and you still insist she broke a law. Oshiomole himself didn't say she broke any law. What are you then yapping about?

This is not an apology, it is more of a justification of his action. This is what oshiomole said

Oshiomhole said that he now regretted the
comments which had become the subject of
discourse in the social media.
The Governor, however, noted that he made the
comments in anger.
Can someone please show me the apology. Who did he apologize to? the woman, the benin people, the visting FOMWAN women or to Nigerians in general?

in foreign countries oshiomole would have resigned over this crude and barbaric statement. we reject this apology. oshiomole must invite her to the govt house or visit her or make a statement of apology. Its not as if he has programs for widows.

The widow flouted a law but the governor spoke out of turn. But he can still salvage the situation by offering a full and personal apology to the woman. This kind of faux pas to me just shows that even "their excellencies" arent so excellent afterall...
