Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki has said making his deputy, Comrade Philip Shaibu, visible is not a crime.
Obaseki, yesterday, while receiving leaders of his Edo South Senatorial District at the Government House, Benin, declared that the ‘Emilokan’ (it is my turn) syndrome or spirit was not a strategy for winning elections and governing the state.
Edo Deputy Governor’s Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Ebomhiana Musa, who also hails from Edo North Senatorial District as his boss, said yesterday evening: “Comrade Shaibu actually came to Nigeria, but briefly, and went back again (to the United States of America). He is still on leave.
“We will not take issues with Governor Obaseki. The office of Edo State Governor and the person of Governor Obaseki must be respected at all times.”
