BREAKING: Edo State Deputy Governor, Shaibu Withdraws Suit Against Obaseki

Philip Shaibu, Edo State Deputy Governor, withdraws suit to stop alleged plot by Governor Godwin Obaseki to remove him from office.

TopNaija understands that Shaibu cited the case with Suit No in a circular dated September 5, 2023. FHC/ABJ/CS/1027/2023 before the Federal High Court named the Inspector General of Police, State Security Service, the Governor of Edo State, and the Chief Judge of Edo State as defendants.

In a circular, the deputy governor disclosed that he had withdrawn the lawsuit after engaging in a series of meetings with himself, Obaseki, and other concerned citizens of Edo and Nigerians, including party leaders, traditional rulers, and the Archbishop of the Benin Archdiocese of the Catholic Church.

“With due respect to these eminent personalities and leaders whose persuasions and persons I cannot ignore, I, Rt. Hon. Comrade Philip Shaibu has authorized and instructed my Solicitors to withdraw the Suit forthwith,” Shaibu wrote.

“I wish to sincerely thank and appreciate these well-meaning Nigerians, Party Leaders, Traditional Rulers, and my Archbishop, His Grace Most Rev. Dr. Augustine Akubeze, for their kind words, advice and encouragement thus far in ensuring peace and unity in our dear State, Edo.

“I also wish to place on record my special thanks to Mr Governor, my boss and senior brother, for this path of peace.”
