Obaseki/Shaibu rift deepens as Deputy gov gets new office outside Govt House


The Edo State Government has relocated the office of the deputy governor to a building outside the government house.

A building located at 7, Dennis Osadebey Avenue, close to the Government House, which is the Edo State Procurement Agency office, has been renovated with a sign reading Office of the Deputy.

The building was commissioned by the former governor, Adams Oshiomhole on December 16, 2014.

The development followed the feud between the governor, Godwin Obaseki and his deputy, Philip Shaibu,

The battle for succession has pitched the deputy governor against Obaseki.

Shaibu, who hails from Edo North Senatorial District, plans to succeed Obaseki, an indigene of Benin in Edo South senatorial district.

However, Obaseki is reportedly pushing for a successor from Esanland in Edo Central senatorial district.
