The Deputy Governor of Edo State, Comrade Phillip Shaibu, on Saturday countered the former Deputy Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon Festus Ebea.

He condemned the statement credited to the former Deputy Speaker on the 2024 state governorship election as sickening and unacceptable, adding that everything in life including politics belongs to God.

‘’My destiny is in the hands of God and it is only God that can determine the future. I don’t know the next position that God is taking me. I am not like Ebea that brags on his ability. I brag on God’s ability, which is my driving force. He should speak about himself. He should not speak for me. Festus Ebea should face his principal, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu”. This was contained in a statement issued by the Deputy Governor’s Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mr. Benjamin Atu, and was made available to Hanoky Media in Benin.

‘’Festus Ebea is not my friend and we do not belong to the same school of thought. I belong to the school of thought representing the people when voted for. He should check my record and his record. I did not abandon my duty post anytime”.

“Being the Deputy Governor today was not in my programme. It was God’s programme and since I became the deputy governor, I have left my future in the hands of God. I only believe in facing my mandate with God’s help’’.

The statement also thanked the good and peace-loving people of Edo State for refusing to be hoodwinked by the tissue of lies and propaganda by some politicians.
