Reactions As Obaseki Refused To Shake Hands With His Deputy In Public

Several reactions have trailed the public display of the cold war between Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State, and his deputy, Philip Shaibu.

News360 Info had reported that Obaseki publicly refused to shake Shaibu at the second-term swearing-in ceremony of Duoye Diri as the Governor of Bayelsa State.

During the event, which was held at the Samson Siasia Sports Complex in Yenagoa, Obaseki and some other Governors were already on seat when Shaibu came over to greet them.

He took turns to shake hands with each one of them but when it was the turn of Obaseki, the Edo State Governor refused to offer his hand and instead waved off his Deputy.

Watch the video below…

However, some netizens took to the micro-blogging platform, X (formerly Twitter), to express their opinions on the incident.

Obaseki and his deputy have been at loggerheads over Shaibu’s ambition to succeed him as the next Governor of Edo State.

While Obaseki is believed to be supporting another candidate, Shaibu said he feels betrayed by the Governor’s decision not to support his political ambition.

See some of the reactions below…
