Edo 2020:Deputy Gov Philip Shaibu Faces Eviction As Gov Obaseki, Exempt Him From Campaign Activities, Retrace Steps.
Relationship between Obaseki and Philip Shaibu and obaseki has stopped being what it is since the continuity of Oshiomhole’s chairmanship.
Philip Shaibu who is the deputy of Obaseki has been labelled to be the hand behind the crisis between the parties. Philip used to be a very loyal member to oshiomole before becoming a deputy and because of his loyalty, oshiomole installed his as the deputy governor of Edo state because he thought that Philip Shaibu would feed him information about obaseki’s activities but Philip didn’t do that, instead, he began to work hand in hand with obaseki to remove oshiomole from office in other to have a loyal person who they could control as the chairman of their party.
Before the judgement which approved Oshiomhole’s resumption, both parties have planned to replace the chairman with another member of the party in the NEC meeting but unfortunately for them, the meeting was cancelled by Muhammadu Buhari.
Soon, appeal court approved the continuity of Oshiomhole’s chairmanship and demanded that all party crisis be resolved within the party. Upon resumption of Office, oshiomole preached the settlement of differences amongst party members and this has made obaseki want to associate with the chairman in other to get his second term ticket.
Obaseki’s has however Suspended his campaign activist pending the approval of Oshiomhole. He now sees Oshiomhole as his brother and Godfather even after insulting and going against him in the past.
