Philip Shaibu Explodes

Edo State deputy governor, Philip Shaibu has reacted to his sacking by the State House of Assembly.

Shaibu took to his X page and said:

“It is with heavy heart yet a resolute spirit that I come before you to address the recent events that have unfolded within our dear state.”

“I denounce in strongest terms the illegal impeachment by the Edo state house of assembly over trumped-up charges, this is not just an attack on me as an individual but on the very democratic principles that we hold dear.”

“It’s a dangerous descent into dictatorship, a threat to the foundation of our democracy. Let it be clear that this impeachment was hatched because of my ambition to contest the Edo Governorship election 2024 under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).”

For those who don’t know Shaibu was sacked on Friday by the Edo State House of Assembly on Monday following his impeachment.

The impeachment followed the adoption of the report of the seven-man investigative panel set up by the Assembly to probe allegations of misconduct against Shaibu.
