Addressing the some journalists, Shaibu said he was asked Oshiomhole what the offence of Obaseki is, only to be told “flimsy reasons”.
He said, “Oshiomhole wants me to betray Godwin. And I told him that if I didn’t betray him when he was NLC president and I was NANS president, if u didn’t betray him when he was governor and people wanted to impeach him, I will not betray the cause of this government led by Obaseki.
“Obaseki is doing well. I told him that all the projects that he started are continued by us. I don’t know what he wants but I won’t betray Obaseki.”
Shaibu also called on President Muhammadu Buhari to call Oshiomhole to order, adding that the former governor has been laundering money around.
