“Even if you have ambition, now is not the time to show it because of what has happened over the past few months. The election schedule is still a secret. You cannot be a part of a government and be the one to topple that government at the same time”.

“I believed that we would come together, depart as a unit, and let the public commend you on a job well done before allowing them to decide for themselves. They are the ones who insist that we must go on, rain or shine.

“You’re acting one way while telling the world another. Even when you are in court with your principle, you are loyal to them. 

“Everyone has the right to aim high, but they must do so ethically”.

Evidently, Obaseki was referring to his deputy, Philip Shaibu. To prevent him from dismissing him from office, Shaibu recently hauled his principal into court in order to forward his plans to succeed him, the governor accused his deputy of rigging the youth council elections.
