The Edo state deputy governor, Philip Shaibu, on Tuesday, October 3, dedicated his new office ahead of his resumption.
Naija News recalls that Shaibu’s office was relocated from the state government house after he fell out with his principal, Godwin Obaseki.
Shuaibu’s governorship ambition to succeed Obaseki after the completion of his tenure caused a rift between them as the governor did not hide his disapproval.
The rift resulted in Obaseki relocating the deputy governor’s office out of the government house, disbanding his media crew, and removing him as the supervisory head of the revenue generation agencies in the state.
The duo, however, settled their differences after Shaibu tendered a public apology to Obaseki.
A video shared by TVC showed over ten priests praying, blessing and spraying holy water inside and outside the premises as other voices can be heard singing hymns and other songs.
Meanwhile, an All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Professor John Ebhomien, has weighed in on the impasse between the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, and his deputy, Philip Shaibu.
Speaking on the altercation between the Edo leaders during an interview with Daily Independent, Ebhomien opined that the rift was a waste of time.
He stated that Shaibu ought to understand that he was appointed as a deputy to the governor and must act accordingly.
He argued that Shaibu was ungrateful to Obaseki and the Edo people for his ambition.
