The Deputy Governor of Edo State, Philip Shaibu, revealed that allocations to his office ceased six months ago due to tensions between him and Governor Godwin Obaseki.

During the unveiling of the Correspondent Office in Benin, Shaibu disclosed that he has been sustaining his office and activities through contributions from friends and goodwill.

Describing himself as an ambassador of the Correspondents Chapel, he expressed gratitude to journalists, recalling an investigative report that saved him during the regime of Gen. Sanni Abacha.

Shaibu emphasized his commitment to good governance and institution strengthening, irrespective of the political tensions.

He stated that his involvement in politics aims to create an egalitarian society with strong institutions capable of addressing power imbalances and supporting the weaker segments of society.

The deputy governor announced plans for a world press conference in the coming weeks to provide a detailed stewardship of his tenure from 2016 to date, expressing confidence that it would showcase the level of sacrifice made for the state.
