I Won't Abandon Governance To Support My Deputy — Obaseki

Governor Godwin Obaseki has confirmed that he won’t support the ambition of his deputy Comrade Philip Shaibu, to succeed him.

Speaking through his Special Adviser on Media Projects, Crusoe Osagie, Obaseki said was not yet time for intense politicking, as doing so would be a distraction.

The media aide said it was his boss’ well-considered position that abandoning governance to pursue politicking.

He also said no amount of blackmail would make the Edo governor support Shaibu’s governorship aspiration at this time.

Osagie, who described Shaibu as a rabble-rouser, noted that he took his indiscipline and hubris to the zenith by trying to create a crisis.

The spokesman said: “Shaibu always plays the card of a very loyal deputy, but this is far from reality. A sinner runs when no one pursues him.

“The most blame goes to Governor Obaseki for trying to adopt a civilised manner in relating with his deputy, in a society where such gesture would be taken for weakness.”
