Edo state deputy governor, Phillip Shuaibu has threatened to dump his boss, Governor Godwin Obaseki over none release of money to fund the campaign for the state’s governorship election coming up next month, September.
Shuaibu handed down the threat to Obaseki at a closed door meeting to iron out issues concerning the election of the secretary to the state government, Osarodion Ogieas well as Charles Idahosa and Domingo Obende in attendance.
A report we are following had it that trouble started when the governor commenced the meeting by saying all hands must be on deck for them to be able to defeat the APC.
Shuaibu however reminded the governor that different committees were set up in the past two weeks but the governor had refused to fund them. Lamenting that the APC has been busy in serious campaigns while nothing has happened regarding the PDP campaign.
“We have been sitting here doing nothing while Oshiomhole is all over the town, we are losing members every day and all we do is setting up committees every day without funding. I will not take this nonsense and you pushed me into fighting a man that made me what I am today yet all we see everyday is committees with no funding.
“Mr. Governor I see you don’t understand what this election is all about. You are not serious about it. Do you think it is the little boys carrying laptops here that will do it. If you don’t want to fund the election then I have no business being here. I will back out” Shaibu was quoted to have said.
