‘Philip Shaibu’s father adopted Oshiomole in Kaduna when he was just 15yrs old’ – Don Pedro Obaseki.
A PDP Chieftain, Dr. Don Pedro Obaseki has alleged that the former governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole is an elder brother to the Edo State deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu. He said in an interview with Arise Tv news that the father of Philip Shaibu adopted Oshiomhole in Kaduna State when he was 15 years old. According to him, the strong forces in Edo State do not want Philip Shaibu to contest for the 2024 election based on the law of equity and fairness.
He said, ”Philips wants to run and the forces within the state are against his running, that is a statement of fact. Edo State has three Senatorial districts, the immediate past governor, Aliyu Adams Oshiomhole is from Iyamho in Etsako West Local Government in Edo North Senatorial district. Officially, Adams Oshiomhole is the Son of Philip’s father.
Philip Shaibu’s father adopted Adams Oshiomhole in Kaduna when he was just 15 years old. So Philip and Adams are brothers on paper. And so when he [Philip Shaibu’s father died] in 2015, there was a state burial for Oshiomhole’s father. I think that should be taken into cognizance.”
