Edo State former Governor Comrade Adams Oshiomhole recently won the primary election to fly the APC flag for Edo North Senatorial seat, it is such a good time to look through some of his works while he was Governor of Edo state.

In the time past Oshiomhole’s work in Edo state have been described as superior , and this is as a result of the fact that his works are still been seen as one of the best Edo state has had, with his government still rated best some have called him Father of modern Edo for modernizing the state.

Some of the superior work are what we are highlighting below
