There was an uproar at Governor Obaseki’s private residence in Ikpokpan over Philip Shuaibu’s insistence on running on the same PDP ticket as the embattled Governor.
Our source has learned that the trouble started when elected leaders of the state PDP, as well as from the Governor’s camp, tried to make a deal that was not favorable to Obaseki’s Deputy Governor.
It became known that the Duo of Hon. Charles Idahosa and chief Tom Ikimi persuaded Philip Shuaibu to investigate the reasons for the dangerous situation on the ground and why the PDP could not give the Governor’s post, as well as the post of Deputy Governor to the Governor’s camp, without taking into account the interests of the PDP and its stakeholders.
During the filing of this report, Shuaibu and his aides shouted and broke valuables in the Governor’s box, almost preparing for a fistfight with those who were not disposed to their interests.
However, the PDP insists that the only way they can agree to gift a ticket to the Governor is to give up the Shuaibu for another person nominated by the party.
The coming days will show even more interesting political events coming from the Governor’s sinking camp!
