Silver Lining In Every ‘Go and Die’ Cloud | Gov. Oshiomhole gifts the widow he insulted with N2million

gov oshiomhole and his widowDays after apologizing to the widow he told to ‘Go and die’ (read HERE) Gov. Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has offered employment to the woman, now identified as Mrs. Joy Ifije.

Aside from the job offer, Oshiomhole also gave the woman a N2million grant for her to get a shop and trade. The governor met with Mrs. Ifije yesterday Sunday Dec. 1st at the Government House and offered her the job which is to join the State’s War Against Indiscipline, in the campaign against street trading and to keep the state clean. He said:

“When you put your things on the road, a vehicle can run into you and they have killed some people like that and that was why I said if you are a widow, do you want more people to be widowed? But when I said go and die, that one was said in a fit of anger. And I am really sorry.

“I want you to join us. We would employ you and pay you salary. You would help us to campaign to other women not to trade on road sides. We should not use poverty as a yardstick.”

The Governor then gave the woman a cash gift of N2 million.

“In addition to working with the War Against Indiscipline, I am also giving you the sum of two million naira so that you can hire a shop, trade inside the shop and not roadside and I pray that God will bless your decision on how you utilize the money. This money is not for you to share or distribute but to help you as a working capital.”

Wow! Talk about a windfall! Abeg, in this month, I come against any force, human or otherwise whose mission is to block my Go-and-Die benefactor, IJN!
