Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has said that he will not be distracted by “the impunity and disregard for the rule of law by some lawmakers in the state House of Assembly in the onerous task of bringing development to every part of the state”.

He was speaking during the inspection of the Storm Water Master plan project in Benin City, the state capital, Tuesday.

According to him, “Like they (contractors) have told me, between now and December, we will lay asphalt on this upper Siluko road; it will be six lanes and between then and the middle of next year, we will put street lights on the road”.

“Let me assure you, all those people who are fighting in the House of Assembly, trying to cause trouble, who want us to bring government money for them to share, we will not give them.  We will use Edo money for Edo people. And with your prayers, we are not afraid. We know that for as long as we work for Edo people, the devil is a liar”, he said.

Some of the residents of the Upper Siluko road area, hailed the governor for the drainage system and road network in the area, and pledged their continued support for his administration.

An elated resident, Mrs. Nonye Umezurike said:  “A saviour has come to us and we are very happy. For many years now, we who are doing petty businesses here were finding it difficult to earn our daily bread, but God has come to our aid; he has answered our prayers”.
