Buhari to find new job for Edo outgoing Governor Oshiomole

President Muhammadu Buhari believed that his All Progressives Congress (APC) will quickly find another big appointment for Governor Adams Oshimhole of Edo state.

The president yesterday expressed his hope during his two-day working visit to Benin City.

According to him, it would result to wasting Oshiomole’s energy if he was allowed to leave politics shortly after his tenure as a state governor.

The president speaking at the Palace of the new Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II, shortly before he commenced the inauguration of projects in the state said the country would be the loser if the APC failed to use the people’s governor’s wisdom, skill and energy.

President Buhari said: “It will be a pity to waste his energy by him retiring. I hope there will be a higher assignment for him to do more for the nation.

“I congratulate the governor for his hard work; Oshiomhole is a hard working governor. We will need his services in Abuja.

“Thank you for inviting me, most especially during this time in the country.

“You have served two terms and you are about to leave. You deserve a place in history. I hope the APC will look for a place for you because your service for the country is far from over.”
