Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has described Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole as one of the best products of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Amaechi also said that the APC is proud of Oshiomhole adding that he is admired by the people of Edo and Nigerians as a whole.

The minister made the comments during a send-off party organized for Oshiomhole who will soon be vacating the office.

“We are proud of him because he has done APC proud not only in Edo State but in the South-South,” Amaechi said.

“He is one of our best and we are grateful to God today that he will bow out having finished strongly to the admiration of not only Edo people but Nigerians as whole,” he added.

Oshiomhole will be handing over to Godwin Obaseki who represented the APC in the September 28 governorship elections.
