Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo tells widow to 'go die' and then offers her 2 million naira and a job for life, golden handshake!

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.Romans 8:2

They say the God of Miracles is ALWAYS doing HIS business and sure this is one of those stories... Thanks to technology, Social media, Smart phones, Facebook, Youtube, twitter etc.
Life keeps getting more interesting, everything exposed at the press of a button and no one knows better than the Governor  Adams Oshiomhole of Edo state Nigeria, whose walk round his city costs him more than an arm and leg!

Here's the story, a street petty trader, has her goods confiscated for selling on the street, she begs for dear life from the Governor himself who decided to do the street rounds, this widow gets rough handled, goods destroyed and even bundled into a police van!. 

Widow:  begs the Gov for her goods back, explaining her situation and social crisis. 'I am a widow, I have no other means of livelihood, I have children to feed'.

Governor says: Go and die!

36hrs later: Widow drinks tea with Governor in the Governor's office!. Made a multi-millionaire, 2 million naira handshake and given a job for life! (boy!, that is what I call a 'dumbfounded miracle'!). I mean how good can it be, drinking tea with the 'Oga at the top'!. Some of us are still praying and fasting to get there..

The poor widow of yesterday now becomes the governors tea buddy today. Like an African adage, my prayer for this month of December is this.. Whatever that needs to happen for me to get to the top, let my legs begin to lead me there asap!.  

here is the story and video.. Remember NEVER loose hope, just BELIEVE, all things are possible if you hold on...


excerpt from Punch Newspaper

The governor said,  “Let me apologise to you for the way I spoke to you. I am very sorry about the statement.
“I have also realised that even in anger, one could still achieve the same result that he set out to without provocative outburst.
“I apologise from the bottom of my heart, but sometimes you get angry when people compromise your efforts.”
He said the government was trying to change the face of the state capital by doing its best to make the city beautiful.
The governor added that it was frustrating and bad for some people to truncate government efforts.
He stressed that trading on the road and walk ways could hinder free flow of traffic as well as cause accidents.
Oshiomhole, therefore, appealed to the widow to join in the campaign against road and walkways trading.
