Gov. Obaseki chases deputy Shaibu out of Government House



Governor Godwin Obaseki seems to have chased his deputy Philip Shaibu out of the Government House.

Shaibu is now expected to relocate his office to a building outside the Government House.

The new office is situated at 7 Dennis Osadebey Avenue, close to the Government House.

A signboard with the inscription, ‘Office of the Deputy Governor’ has been erected at the entrance of the office at Dennis Osadebey Avenue.

The building used to be the office of the Edo State Public Procurement Office which was inaugurated by former governor Adams Oshiomhole, on December 16, 2014. In fact, the plaque stating the inauguration date is etched by the entrance of the building.

One of the workers handling the renovation told Punch that the job was expected to be delivered on Monday.

Speaking about the development, the Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, Chris Nehikhare, said, “If there is a government signboard saying so, then it must be so.”
