The embattled Deputy Governor of Edo State, Philip Shaibu, has apologized to his principal, Governor Godwin Obakeki, over their political differences.
Shaibu begged while addressing journalists recently in Benin City, the state capital. Shaibu asked Governor Obaseki to forgive and forget any wrong he might have committed against him.
He said: “I use this medium to appeal to Mr Governor, if there is anything that I don’t know that I have done, please forgive me so that we can develop our state together. We have just one year to go. We have been the envy of the entire country. So Mr Governor, if there is anything you feel that I have done, please I am sorry. I need us to work together to finish well and strong.”
Their fight started after Shaibu indicated an interest in running for the office of governor of Edo state when Obaseki had already anointed a candidate to succeed him.
