ROAD ACCIDENT: "Governor Oshiomhole Is Hale & Hearty"


The Edo state government has denied the report claiming Governor Adams Oshiomhole is been hospitalised abroad after he was involved in a horrible road accident.
The State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr. Louis Odion was yesterday reacting to the rumour about the Governor’s treatment abroad after an accident involving his convoy occurred late last year.
He stated the Governor is not receiving any treatment abroad, saying he was healthy, hale and hearty and would be on ground during the weekly state cabinet meeting scheduled to hold at the Government House on Monday.
He confirmed that he was with the Governor abroad, shortly before he returned to the country during the week, assuring that Governor Oshiomhole will be back this weekend.
It would be recalled that Governor Oshiomhole is yet to make any public appearance since an accident involving his convoy which occurred on December 28th, last year, involved in an accident at about 10:am, around Ewu in Edo State.
Although Governor Oshiomhole is yet to make public appearance since an accident involving his convoy occurred.
Odion reiterated that rumour regarding Oshiomhole’s ill-health was being peddled by his detractors and political enemies.
“Quote me that I told you the governor is hale and hearty. He is fine. He did not sustain any injury as his enemies are claiming and we could not have lied that he did not sustain any injury if he actually sustained any injury. The rumour is the handiwork of those that want him to die.”
“I also travelled abroad and just returned to the country. I met him and spoke with him. He is fine. Right now, I cannot be so certain to tell you he is back into the country because I am not in town yet. But he will be in office to preside over the cabinet meeting on Monday,” Odion said.
