Gov. Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State, on Friday called on the people of the state to offer special prayers for him to render good service.

Oshiomhole made the call in Benin at a thanksgiving service to mark his 62nd birthday at the Government House Chapel.

He said as a human being, he was not superhuman and so could make mistakes in governing the state.

The governor, therefore, urged the people to pray that God would grant him wisdom, protection and guidance that would enable him work and deliver on his mandate.

He thanked the people for being supportive of his administration and its policies.

The Chaplain of the chapel, Rev. Fr. Andrew Obinya, had earlier admonished the governor to continue doing well and learn from his journey through life.

Obinya also enjoined Oshiomhole to keep an open mind and remain compassionate, reminding him that not all people would love and appreciate him.

He urged him not to be made angry by critics, noting that any person in such position would face similar challenges.

The priest also advised the governor not to be vengeful as not everybody would understand his policies.

Obinya said that if a man’s way pleased God, God would fight for the person, urging Oshiomhole to be flexible.

“If there are policies you put in place which are not appreciated by the people, take a look at such policies a second time and take it to God in prayers for wisdom to handle it”, Obinya said. (NAN)
