Former Deputy Governor of Edo State, Comrade Philip Shaibu, has strongly criticized the members of the Edo State House of Assembly for his impeachment on Monday.

Shaibu, who has been at odds with Governor Godwin Obaseki, was ousted from office by the lawmakers following the adoption of a report by a seven-man investigative panel probing allegations of misconduct against him.


In response to his removal, Obaseki swiftly announced the appointment of a 38-year-old engineer as the new deputy governor.

Expressing his disdain for the impeachment, Shaibu accused the lawmakers of betrayal and subversion of justice, warning that history would harshly judge them for their actions.

In a video posted on his social media account shortly after the impeachment, Shaibu condemned the Assembly members for forsaking their oath of office and urged the judiciary and relevant authorities to intervene to uphold the principles of justice and fairness.

He attributed his impeachment to his ambition to contest the Edo Governorship election in 2024 under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), describing it as a legal right.

Shaibu labeled the impeachment as an attack on democratic principles and a dangerous descent into dictatorship, emphasizing that it threatened the foundation of democracy.

Addressing the people of Edo State, Shaibu expressed gratitude for their support during the challenging circumstances and vowed to challenge his impeachment through legal means.
