2023: Philip Shaibu’s ally dumps PDP, reunites with Oshiomhole and APC

Zibiri Mohammed, an ally to Philip Shaibu, Edo State Deputy Governor, and his supporters have dumped the Peoples Democratic Party for the All Progressives Congress in Edo state.

Zibiri who was a former secretary, Etsako West local government of Edo state said he decided to join the former governor of Edo state and former national chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and the APC, due to his people- centred programmes during his tenure and what he is expected to do as a Senator.

” Oshiomhole during his tenure as governor worked excellently well in the state, Edo North Senatorial district and Etsako which he extended to our ward, so it is difficult for us to see his name on the ballot contesting as Senator and we are supporting someone else.

“We can’t abandon Oshiomhole now for anybody because of his performances for our people. So, we have to join him”.

Zibiri, who was also Speaker, Etsako West legislative council, said his decision was also due to the unending crisis which has factionalized the PDP.

He lamented that there is nothing in his ward in terms of projects to show the extent they supported governor Godwin Obaseki and the PDP.

He said another reason for leaving the party was that the governor abandoned stakeholders that worked very hard for the party’s victory and appointed people, including commissioners who were neither voters nor part of the party when they were campaigning for the party.

“It is very unacceptable to import commissioners that were neither voters nor participants in the electoral process.

“Also, they have done series of appointments and employments, nobody was either appointed or employed in my ward. There have been recruitment of teachers, judiciary workers, EDSMA Officers among other employment but nobody was taken from my ward”. He said.
