Edo State governor, Mr Adams Oshiomhole, has hailed President Mohammadu Buhari on his fatherly stance in the financial meltdown facing the states.
He said that the president despite being elected on the platform of All Progressives Congress, APC, has shown love, equity and justice to all the states, a situation he said was entirely different in the regime of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.
Oshiomole said that Jonathan showed favour to the governors of the then Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, states.
Oshiomole, who spoke to State House correspondents on the heels of the meeting between the president and governors, revealed that the PDP governors got N2 billion each from the Ecological Fund without a dime going to the opposition states. He thanked President Buhari for intervening in the dwindling economy of the states without prejudice.
