Newly sworn in Edo Dep Gov pledges loyalty to Obaseki

The newly-sworn-in Deputy Governor of Edo State, Omobayo Godwins, has pledged his unalloyed loyalty to his principal, saying he will not drag power with Governor Godwin Obaseki.

Godwins made this pledge in an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Monday.


Governor Obaseki and Godwins are expected to work together before the end of the governor’s eight-year double terms on November 12, 2024.

The 37-year-old Godwins said he is learning on the job and won’t hesitate to do all that his principal instructs him to do.

He said, “Whatever he say I should is what I will do. He knows my strength. So, I will dwell on my strength when it comes to adding value. Politically, I am learning on the job.


“It’s okay with me. Life is a process. At 37+, I am already a deputy governor, it has improved my political outlook and I am not in a rush to drag with my governor.

Godwins boasted that he has robust grassroot support from his base in Akoko Edo, one of the local governments in the Edo North Senatorial District, to boost the chances of Ighodalo, who hails from Ewohimi in the Esan South-East Local Government Area of Edo Central Senatorial District.

On Shaibu’s impeachment, he said, “That is politics for you. Your job first of all is to be loyal.”
