Edo 2024: Why I’ll defeat Obaseki’s anointed candidate – Shaibu

Obaseki and Shaibu


The Deputy Governor of Edo State, Philip Shaibu, has vowed to defeat the anointed candidate of Governor Godwin Obaseki.

Shaibu who stated this while appearing on a Television Continental programme on Monday evening, said he would defeat Obaseki’s anointed candidate because he has the backing of the people of the state.

According to him, he would defeat the governor’s candidate not because he had the power but because the Edo people wanted their own and he was their own.

“Definitely, I’ll defeat the so-called candidate of the governor, not because I have the power, but because Edo people want their own and I am their own. Edo people do not want importation; they want their own.

“The problem I have with the governor is that he has allowed certain individuals that have interest in governance to come between us.

“He is managing in his own style and the way he feels he can manage it. I am also managing it the way I feel I can manage it.

“When I said I was pressed, but not distressed, I understand the kind of intimidation and oppression I have gone through,” Shaibu said.
