Deputy Governor of Edo State, Philip Shaibu, has insisted that he has all it takes to be the next governor of the state in 2024.

Speaking in an interview on Channels Television on Tuesday, Shaibu said it is the turn of the Edo North Senatorial District to produce the next governor of the state in the interest of equity, fairness, and justice.

He said Edo North, which he comes from, has not been given the governorship ticket by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) since 1999, stating that all other sentorial district had produce past governors.

The deputy governor stated that it was his turn to become the govenor and called on the party to zone the governorship ticket to his senatorial district.

He said: “Edo North is the only Senatorial District PDP has never given a ticket since 1999. All other districts have gotten tickets, so if we are talking about equity, fairness, and justice, Edo North has not been given a ticket.”

Speaking further, Shaibu, who has been Obaseki’s deputy since 2016, said despite the sour relationship between himself and his principal, he is still loyal to the governor.

He said: “I have no problem but I beg the governor, the governor should know he is the leader, he must be able to organise all of us, he must not love one more than the other. If he must do so, he must humiliate one,” Shaibu said, adding that he has been “praying that this whole relationship thing comes to normal”.
