“What is good in coming to Edo State is that every time we come, something is happening,  there is progress and I don’t like to measure progress in terms of report,” he said.

Ruhl said that Edo government was an example of a state delivering service to the people,  adding that the bank would like to collaborate with governments at the national and state  levels to deliver services to the people.

Responding, Oshiomhole expressed the state government’s commitment to prudent financial  management and execution of more people-oriented projects.
