My loyalty to Obaseki remains absolute, says Shaibu


Edo State Deputy Governor Philip Shaibu has reiterated his
commitment to his principal, Governor Godwin Obaseki.


Obaseki had recently accused his deputy of plotting a coup
against him, further deepening the rift between the duo amid moves for Shaibu’s


When questioned on the sidelines of the Tankgiving service
held at the Government House to mark the 32nd anniversary of Edo State, Shaibu
refused to make public comments.


Instead, he said, “As for the issues that were around town
when I was away, I really would not want to talk. Issues that concern my
governor are not things I like to speak about on camera. No, no, no! He is my
elder brother and boss, and I don’t think I should talk about anything.


 ‘If I have issues
with him, I think it is better settled at home and not in the media. I am well
brought up,” he said on the sidelines of a Thanksgiving service held in Benin
to mark the 32nd anniversary of Edo State.


“I can tell you that, from my Christian background, if you
make a vow with God that you want to do something, you must fulfil it. And the
vow I have taken with God is that I will continue to support Godwin Obaseki as
the governor of Edo State from the beginning to the end.


“But that does not stop anything that has to do with
ambition. Ambition is personal, and it does not affect loyalty. My loyalty to
the governor remains absolute. I see that everybody is doing solidarity. I am
also in solidarity with the governor. I am also declaring my unalloyed
solidarity and loyalty to the governor and nothing more.”
