Governor Adams Oshiomhole has become a grandfather, a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Peter Okhiria, has said.
The governor’s daughter, Mrs. Jane Adukwu, gave birth to a baby boy at a private hospital in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory, last week.
An elated Oshiomhole, who announced the birth of the new addition to his family at a Special Thanksgiving Service for himself, family and government at the St Paul’s Catholic Church, Benin City, said: “God has been gracious to me and my family.
“Help me to thank God for my family and indeed for the birth of my new first grandchild, whom I call Eric Oshiomeghie.”
Jane got married on January 8, 2011 to Mr. Achimugu Adukwu, son of Architect Gabriel Adukwu, the former Minister of State (Health) at the Holy Trinity Catholic Church, Maitama, Abuja.
