The ex-Gov and the blind girl on her birthday
Comrade Adams Oshiomhole on Thursday, paid a surprise visit to his ‘daughter’ who was celebrating her 15th birthday.
The immediate past governor of Edo State’s ‘daughter’, Joyce Imasuen Osaivbie a blind but highly intelligent young girl is currently a student of Queens College in Lagos.
It was gathered that the blissful relationship started a few years ago when the influential poliician and his wife, Iara discovered the physically challenged girl whose father and elder brother are equally blind.
From that moment they took over responsibility for her education and personal needs and fondly refer to her as their daughter.
So when the former governor realised that yesterday, June 7th was her birthday, he decided to honour her in a grand style by paying her a surprise visit in their modest family home with a beautiful cake to celebrate the special day.
To add colour and glamour to the visit, he went with an entourage of over 40 persons which included the honourable Speaker of the Edo House of Assembly, the Deputy Speaker, Majority Leader, 18 other honourable members of the House, ex-commissioners and his personal aides.
