The Deputy Governor of Edo State Philip Shaibu, has accused former Governor and Former National Chairman, of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, of wanting to subvert laid down democratic tenets enshrined in the Nigeria’s Constitution by seeking a third term in office as the Governor of Edo State, through his surrogate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, whom he had called names.
The Edo Deputy Governor, in a statement by his media aide, Benjamin Atu, said Oshiomhole is displaying blind compassion with a specific pledge to return the state to the path of backwardness where failed institutions and individuals will be more powerful than government institutions with an analogue system of operations, noting that Technological development has since left Oshiomhole behind in the scheme of things.
Shuaibu said Edo people need a new kind of politics and policies that reflect the best value of life and Politics that focuses on bringing people together to work for the common good.
He said the Obaseki/Shuaibu candidacy of the PDP have displayed determination to end the culture of government that habitually failed to stimulate investment; provide massive employment for the youth and failed to reduce poverty and hardship in the land.
The statement further posited that Edo State has a choice between policies of the heart by Governor Godwin Obaseki and policies of the head as currently been propagated by those he called enemies of the State.
Shuaibu said The people of Edo State subscribed voluntarily to the principle of Obaseki because they have seen these principles at work all over the State and cannot risk the future of Edo State with a man’s shrunken aspirations.
He further maintained that Governor Godwin Obaseki is not talking rhetorics like Oshiomhole and his godson are doing, adding that the PDP campaign is based on the affirmation of what the present Obaseki Government has done and still capable of doing, by drawing its strength from the masses to deal with all the state’s vulnerabilities
