Shaibu Set To Announce Governorship Bid On Monday

Philip Shaibu, the Deputy Governor of Edo State, is set to formally declare his candidacy for the governorship position. 
In a letter personally signed by Shaibu and titled ‘Special Invitation,’ his campaign organization invites attendees to the declaration event scheduled for Monday, November 27, at Eterno Hotels at 8 a.m.
Despite reported tensions with Governor Godwin Obaseki, who Shaibu had previously filed a lawsuit against to prevent his impeachment, Shaibu persists in his political pursuits.
Operating from an office outside the Government House, he actively consults with politicians and media regarding his governorship aspirations.
 A close aide revealed that Shaibu plans to officially declare his intention next week, emphasizing the urgent need for practical governance in Edo State.
Speaking with journalists in Abuja on Saturday, Shaibu said he wanted to succeed Obaseki because “Edo people are in dire need of practical governance and we cannot afford to experiment again with someone who does not understand the politics and needs of Edo State.
“Everywhere, including the international scene, people are clamouring that governments should not be pushing projects that are not needed. So, we need to do needs assessment. You cannot know the needs of the people when you don’t live with them.
“For me, competence and experience should be the watchword. Who is competent, more experienced and who will hit the ground running from day one if he becomes governor?
“Are we going to experiment with a new person again and the person will spend the first four years learning on the job and the next four years trying to embezzle and set up businesses in the name of consolidating on his first term?”
