Edo 2024: I Feel Betrayed By Obaseki— Shaibu



The Deputy Governor of Edo State, Philip Shaibu said he feels betrayed by his principal, Godwin Obaseki, not supporting his 2024 governorship bid.

Shaibu stated this in an interview on Arise Television on Wednesday.

“There is this particular verse that has been going through my mind: ‘The heart of man is desperately wicked.’ When I see what the governor is doing, the verse now makes meaning to me,” he added.

Claiming that he was persuaded to be the deputy governor to Obaseki, Shaibu said he added value to Obaseki’s government with political structure and finances.

He said,  “Actually, I was persuaded and there was no protest. I actually didn’t want to be a deputy governor. I was very comfortable in the House of Representatives. It took almost one month to get me to accept to be the deputy governor of Edo State.
