The deputy Governor of Edo State, Philip Shaibu, believes that his choice to run for governorship was a result of divine intervention.

However, he acknowledges that Governor Godwin Obaseki has his own agenda, despite the divine signals Shaibu received.

Shaibu emphasized that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) can only secure victory in the governorship election if he is included on the ballot during an interview on a private broadcast television station in Lagos.

He said, “Before publicly declaring my interest to contest, l had consulted widely with many persons and groups within and outside Edo State.

“Moreover, l went into prayers to seek guidance and direction from God.

“The signs l received encouraged me to go ahead with my aspiration, though it was obvious the governor has his own plans of supporting another person.

“If my party wants to win the election in Edo State, they should give it (ticket) to Philip Shaibu, but if they want to lose, they should give it to somebody else, not because I am a superstar but because I have the content, I have the quality, and I have the experience.”
