Oshiomhole Enticed Me With Governorship Position To Betray Obaseki- Shaibu

I've No Rift With Oshiomhole – Shaibu

The Deputy Governor of Edo State, Comrade Philip Shaibu, has said his loyalty to Governor Godwin Obaseki is unwavering.

In a chat with newsmen on Thursday, Mr Shaibu revealed how former APC National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, wanted him to join in the move to unseat Obaseki.

Shaibu said he begged Oshiomhole to let go of any grievance he had against Obaseki because the governor was doing well for the Edo People, a plea which Shaibu says fell on deaf ears.

The Edo deputy governor went on to reveal that on realizing that Oshiomhole had declared a war against the governor, he told the former governor that he will stand with Obaseki come what may.

According to Philip Shaibu, the ploy was to remove governor Obaseki at the onset and replace him with his deputy, but he said he refused, stating that it was not his “will nor nature” to betray.

Mr. Shaibu recounted how he fought on Oshiomhole’s side, stressing that he hates and has been fighting against oppression, and will not stand for the form of oppression which Oshiomhole is championing.

The deputy governor said he will fight to the very last to ensure that Obaseki is defended, the same way he defended Oshiomhole when there were plots against him in Edo State.

He, however, challenged Oshiomhole to come and test his popularity when the votes are to be cast, claiming that the former chairman of the APC has lost his integrity and is no more the man of the people he once was perceived to be.

…Reveals Plans For Lagosians

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Friday said the people of the state are aware of what they will miss if his administration is denied a second term.

Although he did not expressly state if he will seek re-election in 2023, the governor believes it is left for the people to decide if his administration deserves another term or not.

“I think we are doing a very good job,” the governor rated his administration during his appearance on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily. “If I dare say so, I think that the citizens know what it is they will be missing if they don’t let us continue to wrap up all the things we are doing.”

He added, “As we speak, we have done about two-thirds of our time – about 65.7 per cent, because we count it every day. The field is not open yet; the race has not been declared open yet. But for me, it is about ensuring that these four years that I have promised my citizens, I put every bit of my sweat into it.

“I will ask, I will consult; citizens, how do you see it? …. that’s how you get it down. Keep your focus on, try and finish very strong. You know when it is time for us to do all the politicking, we will do it.”

Governor Sanwo-Olu also spoke about the efforts being made by his administration to address the gridlock on Lagos roads.

Following the purchase of two new sets of 10 cars Talgo 330kmph trains for its red line rail project, he revealed that the coaches would be on track by the fourth quarter of the year.

According to the governor, the terminal stations will be ready by the set target but transporting passengers may commence next year.

He attributed the possible delay to proper testing of the trains and training of workers, to ensure the safety of passengers.
