Just In: Edo Deputy Gov Shaibu begs Obaseki for forgiveness
The embattled Edo state deputy governor, Philip Shaibu, has apologised to his principal, Governor Godwin Obaseki, over their political differences.
Shaibu, who said this in an interview with journalists in his Benin City residence on Thursday, September 21, asked Governor Obaseki to forgive him for his shortcomings.
He said: “So we have resumed there is no problem with it, the governor has asked us to go there.
“Like I always tell people, I am a loyal servant, there is nothing that has changed, I took a personal vow to support the Governor, and you can see my Catholic people are here, everything about me if I have a vow with God, there is nothing that will change it.
“And I can only wish that the relationship that we had in the next few days and weeks, I know it will come back.
“I’m missing my governor really and by the grace of God, I know God will touch the governor’s heart and touch all of us and even those that are trying to be in between God will touch them to know that I mean well.
“If there is any mistake that I have made as human, is just human, is not an act of maybe wickedness, because I’m not wicked. I have a very clean heart.
“I will 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 less than how many months, just one year to go. We’ve been the envy of the entire country, it is still possible.
“So Mr Governor, please if there is anything that you think I have done, I am sorry. I need us to work together to finish well and strong because that is my prayer for you.”
