The All Progressives Governorship candidate in the September 10 INEC-scheduled election, Godwin Obaseki, on Monday described the nomination of Philip Shuaibu as his running mate by the party caucus in the state as one of the best things to have happen to the youths of the state.
Obaseki, who was reacting shortly after the nomination of Shuaibu as his running mate by the party leaders, expressed joy that Shuaibu who is currently the member representing Etsako Federal constituency in the House of Representatives, will bring his wealth of experience to bear in the task to take the state to the next level.
According to him, “After consultation with the party caucus and leadership, I have accepted Philip Shuaibu as my running mate. He comes with a lot of political experience, haven served as Majority Leader of the state House of Assembly and a member of the committee on Works in the House of Representatives. He belongs to this generation of politicians who will be joining me in this effort to take Edo to another height.
“I am happy with the decision of the party and Shuaibu being some body that I have worked with all these years, understands the politics and most importantly as a young man, our youths have where to run to. I am glad I will be having somebody like him around to help provide the services needed by our people.
“We are on a mission to consolidate on the huge successes made by the Governor Adams Oshiomhole led administration. We all have been part of it and I believe we know and understands better what our good people of Edo state needs more than the PDP who wants to come and destroy what we have built. But God will not allow them.”
