Edo State Deputy Governor and an aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party in the forthcoming governorship election in the State, Philip Shaibu has come out to say that nobody can stop him from getting the governorship ticket of the party.

He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, nothing will happen to his name on the ballot because he has already received assurances from the right people he consulted.

Philip added that his relationship with Adams Oshiomhole is cordial, and he still considers him a father.

His words, “I can assure you that I will secure the ticket and my name and the party will be on the ballot. Nothing will happen because my name will be there.

My name will be sent to INEC and I will be the candidate for the party in the election because I don’t do things without checking. I have gone round and consulted and I have been assured.

My relationship with Adams Oshiomhole is cordial. When I mean cordial, he is still my father. Politically, we are in different political parties.

I am happy that the governor (Obaseki) has started inviting the former governor (Oshiomhole) and my father to political functions. That is what I have been praying for.

And now that he has started, I think that the next step is for me to reach him and also first apologise to him (Oshiomhole) for some use of words during the election but in terms of principle of supporting Obaseki, I will still support Obaseki because God told me that is the right thing to do.

One of the crises that I had was when I went to the Senate to congratulate Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and I was seen in a viral video. That was where my headache started because the governor’s style is that a friend of the governor, you must be friend to him and an enemy to the governor, you must be enemy to him. I understand that principle and I am being careful.

What I was waiting for was for the governor to make that move because I will not make that move if the governor had not made the move. Now that he has made the move to be inviting Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, I am emboldened to go and see him.”
