Governor Godwin Obaseki Bars His Deputy, Shaibu From Government House

POSTED ON September 19, 2023 •   Uncategorized      BY Ugwuagwu John •   VIEWS 43
On a Monday, Deputy Governor Philip Shaibu arrived at his office in the Edo State Government House but found that the entrance to his office building had been locked with chains and heavy padlocks.

Deputy Governor Shaibu and his aides reportedly waited for about an hour at the locked gate, attempting to reach Governor Godwin Obaseki during this time. However, their efforts to communicate with the governor were unsuccessful. During the time he was locked out, Deputy Governor Shaibu reportedly reached out to the Commissioner of Police and the Director of the Department of State Services (DSS) to inform them of the situation, Premium Times reports. This suggests that he sought assistance from security agencies in response to being locked out of his office. It's noted that there was no official communication regarding the decision to lock the deputy governor out of his office. This lack of communication raises questions about the circumstances and motivations behind this action. Deputy Governor Shaibu apparently took action by summoning the Camp Commandant at the Government House, SP Ibrahim Babatunde. During this interaction, he questioned why he was locked out of his office, suggesting that he was seeking an explanation for this situation. “He said it was a directive from above, adding that the CSO in Government House, Wabba Williams, will be in a better position to explain,” the aide said. Shaibu was said to have put calls to Williams, who promised to come to the scene. However, the CSO never came all through the period Shaibu waited.
