Edo 2024: Shaibu Donates Campaign Office, Vehicles, Structure To APC, Okpebholo

Philip Shaibu, former Deputy Governor of Edo State, on Monday, donated his campaign secretariat office to the All Progressives Congress’ Senator Monday Okpebholo/Hon Dennis Idahosa Campaign Organization.

The campaign office, located along the Airport road, Benin City, hitherto served as the headquarters of the Philip Shaibu Campaign Organization while Shaibu was running for governor, until his disputed impeachment.

Also donated in addition to the Campaign Office were several sienna vehicles, utility (music) trucks, and the collapsing of the Philip Shaibu campaign structure into the APC. 

It was gathered that the former deputy governor took the steps when he received members of the APC Campaign Council led by its Director General, Senator Matthew Urhoghide, on a visit to the Philip Shaibu Campaign office.

When this reporter visited the campaign office Monday evening, it was observed that the secretariat had been rebranded. All branding bearing Shaibu’s pictures and the PDP logo had been removed and replaced with that of the APC and Okpebholo/Idahosa.

With this latest development, Shaibu, who is currently challenging his impeachment as deputy governor and emergence of Asue Ighodalo as candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, is believed to be on his way back to the APC.

Recall that Shaibu and other aggrieved former PDP Governorship aspirants and members of the Chief Dan Orbih-led Legacy PDP Group had vowed not to support Ighodalo in the upcoming September 21, 2024 gubernatorial election.
