A former Governor of the state, Adam Oshiomhole, taught me all I know about politics, Edo State Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu says.
Shaibu, during a thanksgiving service held at Saint Philip Catholic Church in Jettu, Etsako West Local Government Area of the state on Sunday, disclosed this.
He said, “Adams Oshiomhole taught me all I know now politically. He made me stand my ground and help us end godfatherism. I have no quarrel with Adams Oshiomhole.
Shuaibu noted that there were a lot of lessons to be learnt from the re-election of Governor Godwin Obaseki.
He said, “We must come together as a nation in recognising our shared interest in placing boundaries on our competition in order not to divide the nation into hostile and irreconcilable camps. This dangerous impasse is one area where the wisdom of Governor Godwin Obaseki has reigned supreme.”
The deputy governor who described Obaseki as a selfless governor whose thoughts is always about the state and the next generation appealed to the people of the state to support the administration while delivering its campaign promises.
Bishop Godrick Shabba, in his sermon titled, “Rejoice in the Lord”, persuade believers to be faithful to God noting that it was a heart of gratitude to God that brought the deputy governor and his family to the house of God.
The event was part of activities to celebrate Shuaibu’s re-election alongside his principal, Governor Godwin Obaseki, under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party.
