Members of Edo Assembly have served Deputy Governor, Comrade Philip Shaibu, an impeachment notice.

Shaibu, a former member of the House of Representatives, ex-Majority Leader of Edo Assembly and former President of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), was given seven days to respond to allegations levelled against him.

Edo Governor Godwin Obaseki and Shaibu, both chieftains of the governing Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo, are at loggerheads over the authentic governorship candidate of PDP in Edo.
Obaseki is fully backing a Lagos-based lawyer, Asue Ighodalo, who emerged as the party’s standard bearer of the governorship indirect primary election at Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin.

Shaibu emerged factional candidate at a parallel primary at his official residence on Commercial Avenue in Benin.
