It has been an intense preparation going into the gubernatorial election in Edo State, From Adams Oshiomole’s entry into Edo state, to the Governor Godwin Obaseki’s Decision to deal decisively with the electoral rigging in the fourth coming election, oyogist.com reports.
Ahead of the poll, the Edo State Deputy Governor, Mr Philip Shaibu has made some striking revelation about the former Governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams Oshiomole and the APC gubernatorial flagbearer, Pastor Ize-Iyamu.
Philip Shaibu who spoke to newsmen about what transpired was quoted as saying; “I was repeatedly advised by Comrade Adams Oshiomole to impeach Godwin Obaseki and become the Edo state Governor; it was a decision i wholeheartedly refused and that resulted to the face-off that exist between us.”
“I can’t do that because during Oshiomole’s era as the Governor of Edo State, he was under heavy oppression and i stood by him to make sure he wasn’t impeached, during that time, i was brutalized and it was Pastor Peter Ize-Iyamu who led the attack. It is unfortunate that the same Ize-Iyamu is now a saint in the eyes of Adams Oshiomole whom he degraded with words. Philip Shaibu continued.
“I had to throw my wife and children through the fence because i needed to save Adams Oshiomole From impeachment, I’m undeterred and ready to use the same energy i used in defending Adams Oshiomole from impeachment on Godwin Obaseki because i detest injustice,” He concluded.
