Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has appealed to Nigerians to be patient with the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari. He stated this at the 60th birthday celebration of Secretary to the Edo state Government, Prof. Julius Ihonvbere.
According to him, it will take some time to fix the nation’s economy, which according to him was battered by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for 16 years.
Oshiomhole, who acknowledged the current difficulties being faced by Nigerians, affirmed that the APC led government in the country was working round the clock to find solution to the problems.
The governor said: “Changes takes time, not only in the life of a person but more also in the life of a nation. This is a country that was ran down for 16 years by PDP. The APC government is going to achieve sincere change for Nigerians and we are working towards that”.
Commending Prof. Ihonvbere for helping his administration kick out the PDP government in Edo State, Oshiomhole said “Let me thank you for that honour for joining forces with us to sustain the fight against the forces that don’t think that Edo is entitled to development. And working side by side, we have cleaned up the political space.
“Even now that the umbrella has turned into three pieces, they are still boasting. When Edo was under one man’s rule, those voices were loud, they would have told you whether or not there is vacancy in Osadebey Avenue. As you can see working together, strategizing together, mobilizing together, for refusing to agonize we are standing and they are down.
“There is no way I would have been able to achieve all these without the encouragement that you (Ihonvbere) have always readily offered in a moment of doubt when we were strategizing”, he stated.
