The former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole has been accused by the Deputy Governor of Edo State, Philip Shaibu, of planning to seek the third term in office through the APC governorship candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
The former Governor of the state is supporting Ize-Iyamu against the state Governor Godwin Obaseki in the forthcoming electoral process in the state.
Shaibu in a statement released through his spokesman, Benjamin Atu, noted 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 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.”
Shaibu added that “we cannot risk the future of Edo State with a man’s shrunken aspirations.”
