Benin City, Edo state – Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state has confirmed the appointment of Godwins Omodayo as his new deputy after the impeachment of Philip Shaibu.

He stated this in a statement shared via his X handle (formerly known as Twitter) @GovernorObaseki

Obaseki said:

“At no point in this journey did I envisage that I would be having to work with two deputies before the end of my 8-year run in office. As there cannot be a vacuum in govt, we have, by consensus, selected Omobayo Godwins to take over the baton as the new Dep. Gov. of Edo State.”

Nigerians react as Obaseki appoints new deputy governor


Edo Nor be Lagos was the biggest scam and my beloved Edo people fell for it!!

Edo will reject @GovernorObaseki protege @Aighodalo totally

Because a Governor that didn’t perform well don’t deserve to bring in a replacement.


Congrats on ur achievement and victory, sir. But power is Transient. No one can have it forever.


Your hand dey inside makes you rest.

They should impeach you also.

In fact let y’all tenure end so all of you can get out of that office.

You made no impact whatsoever.


Shameful!!! This is nothing to be proud of!!

Federal government roads governor!!


Phillip Shaibu deserves the impeachment. Dude feels too entitled. Power must go to Edo Central after Obaseki. Asue Ighodalo remains the best man for the job.


Politics is a dirty game.

You can’t fight your boss that raise you to where you are.


The only crime @HonPhilipShaibu committed was daring to contest which was in his constitutional right and you find that disturbing

We at Edo are well aware of this fact and will respond on the ballot, now you you can come and force your foster candidate on us let’s see



Congratulations to you and your new deputy YE, but it’s important to note that the ‘constitutional role’ was never in the interest of Edo people, but yours alone. Let’s move forward


You impeach Philip because of him ambition abi no be that one cause the fight??


Shuaibu got what he deserves. When you sow wind, you’ll reap whirlwind.

This season film long oo and is interesting.


The only successful project you carried out in Edo State was the impeachment of your former right hand man, you forget so soon how he stood by you against God fatherism (oshomole) in Edo State. PDP will never win the upcoming election because of your deeds.

Why Obaseki chose me as new Edo deputy governor

TheTalk.NG earlier reported that Omobayo said Governor Obaseki said the decision to make him his deputy came from God.

Omobayo said he was surprised when Obaseki gave him the invitation for a dialogue about being his deputy a couple of days ago.
