NAIJ.com gathered pictures from former Edo state governor Adams Oshiomhole and wife's recent visit to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp in Edo state.

The immediate past governor of Edo state, Adams Oshiomhole, and his wife Iara, visited an IDP camp in Ohugua, Edo state recently.

This will not be the first time the couple have done this, as they visited and interacted with the displaced people way back in 2015 and even in 2016, while they were still in power.

The former governor and his wife played with the kids and also donated cash and some relief materials.

Oshiomhole shared one of his experiences at a police station. He said:

"I am never ashamed to tell people that when I got to Kaduna, I still do remember that after I stayed in a police station for three nights because I had nobody there to take care of me, I moved into Gwari camp and also stayed there for two weeks before I found somewhere. For my own life experience, these kids, they are all very intelligent, and above all, they are enthusiastic.

There’s the challenge of food shortage in every camp, but much more than that, they need to be educated or learn something so that they don’t lose out. I think here is a model of what is possible with minimum government support they will excel. I think we must recognise that they need the love of every Nigerian not just government for the contributions that would make a difference."

The former governor and his wife also gave cash and food items to the IDPs

Giving his reason for spending time with the displaced, he said:

This is part of my wife’s commitment under the We Care Trust programme. We are happy to do more. We are really touched that so much can be done with so little resources. I am happy to see children well brought up to live a decent life despite their challenges. The current governor is just as committed and I am sure that he will give them the support they need. This is also part of Edo community, it is a core part of Edo and like every other part they will get what is due to them.

The couple donated bags of rice, maize, vegetable oil and educational materials to the IDPs.
