After the well publicised altercation between him and a widow in Edo State, the no 1 citizen of the State, Adams Oshiomole has since then, taken the welfare of the widows in the state as a no 1 priority.

Oshiomole, who is co-incidentally a widower, has been at the front-burner of advocating for the welfare of the widows since that unfortunate incident.

Beyond the rhetorics, the comrade-governor or Oshio-baba as he is fondly called has taken concrete steps to address the challenges Edo State widows face.

Recently, the governor distributed materials for some group of widows in the state. They include grinding machines, sewing machines, hair dryers and Ten thousand Naira for each for the women.

On hand to distribute the materials were Governor Oshiomole and the wife of the state’s deputy governor, Deaconess (Mrs) Endurance Odubu.
