Shaibu receives office relocation notice from Obaseki


The Edo State Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu’s office, has been relocated outside the government house, according to a letter signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Osarodion Ogie.

The letter, which was dated September 15, 2023, and received by a Permanent Secretary in the office of the deputy governor on Monday, September 18, 2023, directed Shaibu to move to his new office at No 7, Dennis Osadebey Avenue, G.R.A., Benin City.

I write to inform you that His Excellency, the Governor, has approved the relocation of your office accommodation to No 7, Dennis Osadebey Avenue, G.R.A., Benin City.

“You are therefore requested to ensure your compliance in line with Mr Governor’s approval, please.” the letter read

The relocation of Shaibu’s office comes amid a political tussle between the deputy governor and his principal, Governor Godwin Obaseki. 

The tussle began earlier in August, after Shaibu instituted a suit in an Abuja Federal High Court, seeking the court’s protection from an alleged attempt by the governor to use the Edo State House of Assembly and others to impeach him.

The governor swiftly reacted to the suit by disbanding the media crew of the deputy governor and relocating his office from the main Government House.

Weeks ago, some notable state citizens from the political and religious circles waded into the matter, making Shaibu withdraw the case from court.

However, Shaibu’s office at the government house has still not been opened to him.
