Politics What My Mother Taught Me by Edo Governor 'Oshiomhole'



Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo, has described his mother, Ahaja Aishetu Oshiomhole, as "a strict disciplinarian" who gave him good moral upbringing.

He made the remarks on Saturday in Iyamho, near Auchi, at the launching of a book, "Igovina Emosi" a biography of Ahaja Aishetu Oshiomhole, mother of the governor.

The book was written by Mr Imuzeze Ofen-Imu.

The governor said that from his experiences with his mother, there was need for children should honour and listen to their mothers. He said that his mother was a disciplinarian, who believed that sparing the rod would spoil the child.

He said that whatever he is today was the result of the upbringing he got from his mother.

He said that in spite of the strictness of his mother, “she is always caring and committed to humanity,” adding that he acquired wisdom from his mother.

Oshiomhole said that in spite of his age and status in the society, his mother still found time to advice, admonish and instill the right values on him.
