The political landscape in Edo has been stirred by speculations regarding Governor Obaseki's preference for boardroom guru and lawyer Itua Ighodalo as his successor.

In contrast, Deputy Governor Shaibu has publicly declared his intention to contest the governorship seat, a move that reportedly goes against the governor's wishes.

In his congratulatory message, Governor Obaseki acknowledged not only Shaibu's political contributions but also his exceptional qualities as a family man.

The governor highlighted Shaibu's role as an admirable husband and father, underscoring the Deputy Governor's commitment to both public service and family life.

Governor Obaseki's words echoed appreciation for his deputy's dedication, stating, "I congratulate my brother, the Deputy Governor of Edo State, Hon. Philip Shaibu on his 54th birthday.
