  • Governor Oshiomole Hosts President Buhari In His Last Minutes

The Ojuromi of Uromi, Anselm Eidonojie II, has filed a suit before a Benin High Court against the Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, and the state executive council over his recent suspension as the traditional ruler of Uromi.

The suspended monarch also prayed the court to order the sum of one billion naira as compensation for damages against the respondents jointly and severally and as a reparation for the alleged assault, torture, arrest, detention and harassment against him in the course of their alleged unlawful acts.

"I stand here to congratulate Adams Oshiomhole for his foresight, for his hard work and for his personal integrity".

"Considering what he has done, you have to continue in his footsteps".

"Nigeria saved the money from cocoa, palm oil, palm kernel, groundnut, hides and skin and even started the professional development of petroleum".

Speaking at the commissioning of Edo University, Iyamho, on Tuesday, the President said Nigeria's economy is low at the moment because of the country's mono-economy status.

He said, "Now, we have to go back to the land, to solid minerals, and do a lot of savings so that we can leave a better country for our children and our grandchildren. We demolished a portion of the one that was done in 1902 to build a complete new hospital", he said. He understands the concept of inclusive governance and making sure nobody is left behind. "By some coincidence, you will see the red roofs; those are primary school buildings which are a result of the collaboration between the state government and the Federal Government".

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that the President's aircraft, a Nigerian Air Force Plane, with the registration number 5N-FGT, was airborne at 1.45 p.m.

"I will handover to Godwin on Friday".

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday arrived Benin airport to begin a two-day working visist to Edo.

"How do we fund it?" Just check and find out.

"This country has incredible mineral resources".

President Buhari also commissioned the Upper Siluko Road in Benin City, which he described as "no ordinary type of road". Our country has a future under Buhari.

President Buhari said: "It will be a pity to waste his energy by him retiring".

"But oftentimes, when they have finished, they are forgotten until the next four years".
