Obaseki’s Deputy, Philip Shaibu, also dumps APC

Edo State Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu, has followed in the footsteps of his boss, Godwin Obaseki, to leave the All Progressives Congress.

Mr. Shaibu announced his exit from the party on Tuesday.

“It is with great pain that I am leaving the All Progressives Congress (APC) that I helped and laboured to build as a result of the recklessness and absolute lawlessness of Comrade Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole, the suspended APC National Chairman,” he said.

Oshiomhole’s “undemocratic and dictatorial tendencies exhibited at all time has become intolerable,” Shaibu added.

“The APC has been hijacked for some personal and selfish interests of an individual called Comrade Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole.”

Shaibu also pledged to “stand with the Governor of Edo State, Mr Godwin Obaseko. Anywhere he is taking his political ambition to, I, Comrade Philip Shaibu, will follow him.”
