Edo North Senatorial District Representative and All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate Adams Oshiomhole recently informed Edo State Deputy Governor Philip Shaibu that the APC does not maintain an IDP camp for displaced politicians.
Former Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole made the claim on Thursday in response to claims by his successor Godwin Obaseki that Shaibu’s legal action against him was a ploy to force him to migrate to the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC).
Oshiomhole, according to PM News, has reportedly told the deputy governor to respect and be loyal to his boss and that his goal is for Edo to be ruled peacefully and harmoniously.
However, I feel it’s important to clarify that the APC is not a treatment facility for those who are considering fleeing to it. For nothing, I can reveal that to you.
The APC is content with its current state, members are content with their current role as opposition, and the party has no plans to welcome new members who feel they have been unfairly treated. I would like to clarify that the APC does not host an IDP camp.
So, if you’re having problems, my recommendation is to learn to respect your superiors. Oshiomhole was cited as saying, “I have always advised people to be loyal to whoever they work with.”
Shaibu had gone to the Federal High Court in Abuja to prevent his impeachment and removal from office by his boss, Obaseki, before Oshiomhole made his remark.
He filed for a preliminary injunction so that he may continue serving as deputy governor without fear of reprisal.
There have been rumours circulating that Shaibu’s relationship with his principal, Obaseki, has been difficult as of late.
