I Will Defeat Obaseki’s Anointed Candidate – Shaibu


Philip Shaibu

Edo State deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu has bragged about defeating the anointed candidate of Governor Godwin Obaseki in the 2024 gubernatorial polls.

Shaibu said he would defeat Obaseki’s anointed candidate because he has the backing of the people of the state.

He also disclosed that his issue with his principal was that he allowed certain individuals with selfish interest to come between them.

He spoke while appearing on a TVC programme on Monday evening.

According to Shaibu: “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.”
