The Deputy Governor of Edo State, Philip Shaibu, has claimed that former Governor and sacked All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, is covertly seeking a third term in office through Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
Oshiomhole is backing Ize-Iyamu against Governor Godwin Obaseki in the upcoming governorship election in the State.
However, Shaibu in a press statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Benjamin Atu, insisted that Ize-Iyamu was merely a pawn on Oshiomhole’s chessboard.
“The truth is that Ize-Iyamu is merely a stooge. The real man seeking the governorship position is Adams Oshiomhole who has perfected the plan to betray democracy by seeking a third term in office. The price that Oshiomhole will pay for projecting Ize-Iyamu is an outright rejection.
“We need a new kind of politics and policies that reflect the best value of our people. Politics that focuses on bringing people together to work for the common good,” he said
Shaibu added that “we cannot risk the future of Edo State with a man’s shrunken aspirations.”
