Edo: Shaibu makes u-turn begs gov Obaseki


The embattled Deputy Governor of Edo State, Philip Shaibu, has sought for amicable resolution of the feud with his principal, governor Godwin Obaseki.

Indeed, Shaibu while briefing newsmen on Thursday apologised and begged governor Obaseki for forgiveness.

He said “We have just one year to go. We have been the envy of the entire country. So Mr Governor, if there is anything you feel that I have done, please I am sorry. I need us to work together to finish well and strong.

“I use this medium to appeal to Mr Governor, if there is anything that I don’t know that I have done, please forgive me so that we can develop our state together,” he said.

He continued: “I took a personal vow to support my governor and you can see my Catholic people are here. When I took a vow with God, nothing can change it and I wish that the relationship that we had will come back in the next few days and weeks.

“I am missing my governor and by the grace of God, He will touch the governor’s heart and touch all of us and even those that are between us.

“I mean well. If there is any mistake I have made as a human, it is not out of wickedness because I know I’m not wicked. I have a very clean heart.”

It would be recalled that recently, Obaseki and Shaibu have been at loggerheads over issues relating to the alleged plots to impeach the deputy governor among other issues.
