Human right activist, Femi Falana, has described

Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomhole, as a

special governor and one of the best in the


Falana said Oshiomhole took over the leadership of

Edo State at a time its coffers have been looted and

dried up.

The Lagos lawyer, who spoke in Benin City, Friday,

at a colloquium to mark the seven years

anniversary Oshiomhole’s administration in the

state, said roads in Edo could be compared to

roads available in western world.

Falana, who served as moderator at the event, said

Oshiomhole has demonstrated extra ordinary

leadership in looking for money in the rock to fix

the state.

“When he assumed the mantle of leadership, the

expectations at home and abroad were very high.

Having been in the front of popular struggle and

led the Nigerian people against systemic

exploitation and corruption, Nigerians were

wondering what this social critic was going to do.”

“It wasn’t easy because by the time he assumed

leadership, the economy was nose-diving. The

eight years before then, the governors of this

country particularly of this state were all smiling to

the bank.”

“Our comrade accepted the challenge and look for

water even in the rock. The road has not been easy

and the battle has been though. Oshiomhole

ranked as one of the best in this country.”
