Governor Adams Oshiomhole Apologizes Over His 'Go And Die' Comment To Widow

published on Friday, 29 November 2013



So yesterday a video leaked online of Gov. Adams Oshiomhole telling a widow, during an inspection tour on Mission Road, Benin, to go and die because she was begging for her wares, which she sold on the streets illegally, not to be seized.


Gov. Adams Oshiomhole has apologized for the comments he made to the widow. According to NAN, the Governor said he made the comments in anger and he now regrets it. The governor's apology was made when the leadership of the Federation of Muslim Women's Association of Nigeria (FOMWAN), paid him a courtesy visit in Benin. He noted that though the challenge of modern times had bestowed on the shoulders of some women and single mothers the status of bread winners of their homes, such should not be used as an accuse to flout the laws.

He shouldn't have! Nigerians were ready to go bonkers on his ass! Smh!
