Guess what? The Deputy Governor of Edo State, Philip Shaibu, has decided to run for the position of governor! This is a big deal because he is challenging his boss, Governor Godwin Obaseki. Philip wants to be the next governor of Edo State, and he is doing it through the Peoples Democratic Party, also known as PDP.
Philip Shaibu has a good reason for wanting to be governor. He believes that Edo State needs a leader who can actually get things done. According to him, Governor Obaseki has been in charge for almost 8 years, but he hasn’t been able to make a real difference. Philip thinks that Obaseki is like an experimental governor, someone who is still learning how to do the job.
Philip Shaibu wants the people of Edo State to know that they deserve better. He believes that the next governor should be someone who understands the needs of the people and knows how to make things happen. Philip thinks that experience and competence are very important qualities for a governor. He asks the people of Edo State to think about who would be the best person for the job.
Philip Shaibu doesn’t want Edo State to take a chance on a new governor who will spend the first four years just learning how to do the job. He believes that the next governor should be ready to hit the ground running from day one. Philip doesn’t want the people of Edo State to have to wait for their governor to figure things out. He wants someone who can start making a difference right away.
