According to Shaibu: ” that all of us are here today to celebrate with our national leader speaks volume. lt has further shown his leadership capacity”.

“For a long time, we have not been able to gather like this, having this kind of get-together. For all of us to be here today it’s a clear testament to Chief Dan Orbih leadership qualities.This is leadership people can feel and touch. Let everyone subscribe to this kind of leadership, eschew intimidation that will further divide the party and jeopardize PDP chances of retaining Osadebey Avenue, the seat of power”.

“Christmas is a period of love and the sharing love is the greatest of God’s commandments. If you love your neighbour as yourself,  this is the time to show it.  If there are clothes you have not put on for the last three months, wash and press them and look for your neighbour that has none to wear”, Shaibu added.

Earlier, in his christmas message to the people,  Chief Dan Osi Orbih stated: “for me,  this is a special occasion since the re-election of our Governor, Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki and our son, the Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu”.

Orbih enjoined all the  governorship aspirants on the PDP  platform to shun political campaign music capable of dividing the party; music like ‘Obaseki pepper dem ooo’.  The people have really been peppered and we don’t want to see pepper again”.

He continued: “we have all made sacrifices. Obaseki should also know that no sacrifice is too big for the growth of the party. He should be ready to make that sacrifice for the party to remain in Osadebey Avenue, come 2024. While we enjoy the christmas celebration, I thank you all for coming”, Orbih added.
