Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo stateyesterday commissioned a block of eight classrooms and a headmaster’s office renovated by the New Convenant Bible church at Evbuobanosa, Orhiorhwon Local Government Area.

Speaking Shortly before commissioning the project, Oshiomhole said Government will take development to the communities and demonstrate that the people in the rural areas are not inferior to those in the urban areas.

According to the governor, deliberate steps will be taken to take development to the rural communities.

“When we politicians and leaders lament about rural drift, people moving away from villages, rushing to the cities only to get stranded and we sermonize about the need for people to remain where they are, those sermons will amount to nought if we do not take deliberate steps to bring development to our rural communities and one of the key issues of rural development is access to infrastructure,” he noted.

While commending the President of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, Rev. Felix Omobude for renovating the school for the community, the governor said men with means should find the way to reconnect and to identify with their community

“You have started something which I believe many others will like to copy to the glory of God and to the benefit of our great nation. When people say how they should be immortalize, by naming street and houses after them. The best way to immortalize oneself is by what you do while you are alive and the people you touch to the extent that they always remember.

“Rev. Omobude has impacted on his environment and not a few will copy. I want to thank you for reducing the burden of government. Even if government has all the money on the planet government alone does not have the executive capacity to do all the things that we ought to do, to make all the changes that we desire,” he added.

The governor also commissioned a hostel and block of Engineering workshop at the light house polytechnic Evbuobanosa

Earlier, the President of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN Rev. Felix Omobude commended Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole for the developmental strides throughout the state.

According to him, “the people can politicise whatever but the good works you have done all over the length and breadth of Edo state will speak for you. Let me thank you my Excellency, there is no doubt that you mean well for Edo people, we pray for God’s strength and God’s wisdom, God’s grace, that the God who started it with you, He will also finish with you.”

“This project was executed as a way of giving back to the society and as a compliment to your administration’s efforts towards improving the lot of Edo people. Let me join the good people of Edo State to thank you for your developmental strides throughout the state. You have done well your Excellency and I pray for more grace and divine guidance for you and your administration,” he added.
