Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole on Wednesday challenged the Nigerian government to stop lamenting over the parlous state of the nation’s economy and put machinery in motion towards taking the country out of recession.

The governor, who spoke while declaring closed the 2016 National Women’s Conference organized by the Committee of Wives of Lagos State Officials, COWLSO in Lagos, Southwest Nigeria stated that lamentation would not bail the country out of its economic downturn.

He urged women to be resilient in the face of the present adversity and demonstrate their potentials as great economists.

Oshiomhole, who commended Governor Akinwunmi Ambode for his giant stride in Lagos and for fixing the state said: “You have shown that our task as leaders is not to lament what does not work but to think through how to make it work and that you are doing; that you have done and I know that you will continue to do.

“As I was coming to this place today, I noticed something that I think is worth celebrating because of its impact in helping family unity and family union. Why will you wake up at 5am or 4am just to be at work at 8am devoting all the time to traffic?

“The reason was because of the huge traffic challenges but when I received the invitation for today’s event and I was advised that it was 10am and I know my brother, Governor Ambode keeps to time, I said we have to get up early and I told my wife that we are going to spend about two hours from Ikeja Airport to get to Ikoyi, but I was very pleasantly surprised that coming from Ikeja to this place, it was like flying a first class aircraft from Alausa to the heart of Ikoyi.

“When I got here, I was asking the Governor on how he did it and he shared with me the interventions put in place within months of his assumption of office that have helped to completely reorder the traffic in Lagos such that when we slow down to about 20km per hour, we noticed people asking what is causing this go slow but things have changed so much.”
