Written By Oshiobugie Omo-Ikirodah
Benin City, Edo State – The political climate in Edo State has been characterized by ever-growing tension and uncertainty. At the heart of this turmoil is the strained relationship between Governor Godwin Obaseki and his deputy, Philip Shaibu. The once unified front of the duo is now a distant memory, replaced by divisions and disagreements that many believe could culminate in physical confrontations.…CONTINUE READING
Various speculations and theories surround the root cause of this friction. Chief among them is Obaseki’s assertion that Shaibu aims to overshadow him. Some even whisper that, given the opportunity, Governor Obaseki would not hesitate to take on Philip Shaibu head-on.
Amidst this backdrop, a critical development occurred last week, a game-changer for the political landscape. The Edo North PDP passed a vote of no confidence against Deputy Governor Philip Shaibu. Conversely, the same group reaffirmed its unwavering support for Governor Obaseki, a move seen by many as an indication of where the balance of power and trust currently lies.
The past provides a frame of reference for the current situation. Recollections of Chief Pius Odubu’s ambitions under the Oshiomhole administration come to mind. The significant difference: Odubu maintained cordial relations with his then-leader, Senator Adams Oshiomhole, despite his aspirations. This juxtaposition raises critical questions about Philip Shaibu’s true intentions and allegiance to Governor Obaseki. CONTINUE READING

Recent claims suggest that Shaibu’s inflammatory remarks towards Oshiomhole were instrumental in the breakdown of the relationship between Obaseki and his predecessor. Shaibu’s verbal tirades against Oshiomhole, someone who played a significant role in his political ascent, have been both surprising and concerning.
Oshiomhole’s recent return to Edo State was a grand event, with large crowds and high-profile figures like former house of rep member, Ej, greeting him at the Benin Airport. Addressing an unofficial press gathering, Oshiomhole delivered a scathing message directed at Shaibu. He emphatically stated that the APC, under his leadership, had no intention of accommodating Shaibu, whom he implied was seeking refuge due to his current political predicament.
Oshiomhole declared, “APC isn’t a place for crisis management. Loyalty matters.”
Shaibu, who reportedly had aspirations of finding a sanctuary in the APC, might now have to reconsider his options.
A video circulating online captures the full intensity of Oshiomhole’s message. In it, he can be seen passionately communicating his sentiments, leaving no ambiguity about his stance on the matter.
The unfolding events in Edo State’s political sphere are drawing nationwide attention, and as the days go by, the saga continues to evolve, with all eyes on the next chapter of this enthralling narrative….CONTINUE READING
