Shuaibu made the comment on Thursday, September 1, 2016, while speaking to members of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) in Benin City.

“Obaseki is a man that when you talk about the story of transformation in our banks, you must mention his name. If you talk about those industries making waves today in Nigeria, the story will not be complete without calling the name of Obaseki,” Shuaibu said.

“If you want to talk about Nigeria as far as economic issues are concerned, you must mention Obaseki. Everybody wants to tap from his experience; it is a gift from God that at this time APC decided that it is time to look for a technocrat to head the government here.

“It became possible to pay salaries in Edo State because we have a team working tirelessly to make things work in Edo state. PDP has record of waste; they have no vision for the state and Edo people will further punish them next week Saturday,” he added.

Meanwhile, Obaseki’s competitor and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has warned the APC candidate not to involve his church in state politics.
