The Deputy Governor of Edo State, Philip Shaibu has blasted ex-Deputy Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Festus Ebea for his recent comments on the 2024 governorship election.
Philip recently revealed that the comments are sickening and unacceptable.
According to him, the people of Edo State must frown at Ebea’s evil machinations because he is only lying to mislead Edo residents.
He added that his destiny is in the hands of God and it is only God that can determine his bright future in politics.
His words, “My destiny is in the hands of God and it is only God that can determine the future. I don’t know the next position that God is taking me.
“I am not like Ebea that brags about his abilities. I brag on God’s ability, which is my driving force. He should speak about himself. He should not speak for me. Festus Ebea should face his principal, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, that Adams Oshiomhole.”
“Festus Ebea is not my friend and we do not belong in the same school of thought. I belong to the school of thought representing the people when voted for.
“I did not abscond from my duty post like he did when he was voted for in his constituency. He should check my record and his record.
“Adams Oshiomhole once called him Ebola. I think the Ebola virus is still affecting him. Being the Deputy Governor today was not in my programme. It was God’s programme and since I became the Deputy Governor, I have left my future in the hands of God.
“I am not like them, who will want to play God and decide what will happen two or three years from now. No man can determine what will happen tomorrow, except God.
“The good people of Edo State must condemn the evil machination of Ebea, his highly contagious anointing to lie and the satanic style to mislead the people.
I believe in facing my mandate. I have never and will never have any discussion with him. He should stop dragging me into nonsense political talk.”
