Shaibu while justifying his loyalty to Governor Godwin Obaseki stated that the immediate past chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) curtailed their plans over his godfather ambition.

The deputy governor who has since fallen out with Oshiomhole admitted that he supported Obaseki against the former APC chairman because he stood in the way of the fight against poverty in Edo.
