In a public statement made on Thursday in Benin City, the Deputy Governor of Edo State, Philip Shaibu, expressed his earnest plea to his political superior, Governor Godwin Obaseki, seeking reconciliation and forgiveness amidst their ongoing political discord. Shaibu urged Governor Obaseki to consider forgiving and letting go of the past grievances.
“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,” he said.
“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.”
