Open Letter To Philip Shaibu: Retrace Your Steps And Leave Obaseki To Sink Alone

Open Letter To Philip Shaibu: Retrace Your Steps And Leave Obaseki To Sink Alone-Omo-Ikirodah

Your Excellency my name is Osigwe Omo-Ikirodah and I from South Ibie clan in Etsako West Local Government Area of Edo State.

Do not be annoyed I am using this means to reach you, before now I have written almost everybody on the necessity for Obaseki not to be allowed to contest the Edo 2020 election, I have written President Buhari, the INEC Chairman, the APC National Chairman, the PDP's NWC aka the Tax Collectors and so many others.

I have never thought of writing you till when I watched you casting aspersions on Comrade Adams Oshiomhole during a Channels television programme ‘ Politics Today’.

You definitely hit below the belt by saying the unspeakable on Adams Oshiomhole.

My only joy is that you admitted Adams Oshiomhole is your father, that admittance would make me spare you the narrative of how Adams Oshiomhole picked you up from obscurity and made you rich famous and powerful.

You know your private history which I think a reminder would be insulting to your personality.

My writing you sir is not to cast aspersions on you or elucidate your ungratefulness and betrayal, my message to you today is simple RETRACE YOUR STEPS and let Obaseki sink alone.

Look at your peers and look at yourself? those you started the struggle with in Edo North are still in the struggle, the likes of Mallam Gani Audu, Hon. Yakubu Musa, Emperor Jarret Tenebe etc.

Your Excellency, you have a name to protect after your exit from governance come November 2020.

Now is the time to start making corrections so you can be at the right side of history.

Aside from making history by dumping a sinking ship that has lost relevance, credibility, respect and public trust, you need to CALM DOWN and view the perception your clan people will see you.

Edo State today is fast retrogressing and only concerted efforts by the right leadership can put back Edo State to a path of sustainable growth.

Edo citizens have rejected Obaseki and have decided to send him back to Lagos, It is my humble appeal to you to rescind your backing for Obaseki's reelection and come back to the progressive fold and throw in your support for Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu for Governor.

For Adams Oshiomhole he would have no choice than to accept back his prodigal son.

My best of wishes.

Osigwe Omo-Ikirodah.
