VIDEO: Gov Oshiomhole Apologizes To The Widow He Insulted And Gave Her 2 Million Naira


Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomole today apologized to the widow he told to "go and die", he also gave the sum of two million naira to the poor woman who is now recognized as Mrs. Joy Ifije.

Mrs Ifije when received at the Edo State Government House today got the N2 million naira grant and an additional employment offer to join the State’s War Against Indiscipline in the campaign against street trading & to keep the state clean.

The Governor while speaking with the woman, said he is sincerely sorry from the depth of his heart and wants the woman to forgive her. He said the statement came out of annoyance as a result of his concerns to protect the lives and properties of the people of Edo state.
When you put your things on the road a vehicle can run into you and they have killed some people like that and that was why I said if you are a widow do you want more people to be widowed? But when I said go and die, that one was said in a fit of anger. And I am really sorry”, Oshiomhole said.
I want you to join us. We would employ you and pay you salary. You would help us to campaign to other women not to trade on road sides. We should not use poverty as a yardstick.
In addition to working with the War Against Indiscipline, I am also giving you the sum of two million naira so that you can hire a shop, trade inside the shop and not roadside and I pray that God will bless your decision on how you utilize the money. This money is not for you to share or distribute but to help you as a working capital”.
