Edo State Deputy Governor, Comrade Philip Shaibu, asked members of the public to disregard the ongoing propaganda that he is on the road to war with his boss.
He described the claim that he is on the road to war with his boss over fund issues as reckless, disoriented and efforts to deceive people by those who are afraid of the unity that exists between him and his boss.
He accused Adams Oshiomhole and Ize-Iyamu for conducting political affairs like a primitive war. "This Machiavellian political system, where all forms of magic tactics are employed fairly and without fault, will certainly achieve the opposite result."
The vice governor warned the author, sponsors and those with unprecedented capacity for lies and blackmail to be cautious.
In a statement made available to the media by the Senior Special Assistant to the Vice Governor, Mr. Benjamin Atu condemned the deceptive story and online publication against the Vice Governor's personality by indecent elements sponsored by desperate and powerless businessmen and traders.
Comrade Philip Shaibu has promised that his loyalty to Governor Godwin Obaseki will forever remain sacrosanct and both Adams Oshiomhole and Ize-Iyamu, through their publication, have revealed their desire and their desire will never happen.
“My loyalty to Obaseki is sacrosanct and not debatable. No amount of blackmail or propaganda can stop me from serving the interest declared by Governor Philip Shaibu. "I will support Obaseki and guarantee that he wins the September 19 government election in Edo state"
He asked the people of the state to disregard the ongoing rumors. "Expect more from this type of propaganda from these characters who did not wish us well.
Therefore, the Declaration urged the Nigerian Police and other security agencies to carefully examine the intentions of the purposes of these elements of bad faith and to ensure that the authors are decisively dealt with with the added statement.
