Edo State Deputy Governor Philip Shaibu


Edo State Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu has threatened the 18 Local Government Chairmen in the state, over their low Internally Generated Revenue.


Shaibu, who threatened the local government bosses during a meeting with them, stated that it was disappointing that all of the council bosses generate only N3m (combined) every month.


According to him, all the council bosses shall be subjected to a probe by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, before being sacked by the governor, Godwin Obaseki.


“Between now and the end of May, I will personally do a letter to the Governor to sack you, people.


“Before sacking, we will get the EFCC to check all your books…and you’ll be fired. We cannot continue like this.


“How can 18 local governments (generate) N3 million in a month as revenue? 18 local government N3 million !” he lamented.
