BENIN – Edo Integration Group (EIG) has lauded the nomination of Mr. Philip Shaibu, former president of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) as the All Progressives Congress (APC) running mate to Godwin Obaseki, the governorship candidate.

A statement signed by Destiny Obasuyi and Dave Olowojoba, its chairman and secretary, respectively, stated that the emergence of Hon. Shaibu, member representing Etsako Federal Constituency at the Federal House of Representatives, did not come as a surprise.

“Your nomination as the running mate to the APC governorship candidate Mr. Godwin Obaseki did not come to many of us as a surprise as you have been an embodiment of selfless service and an advocate of the masses for several years.

“Your sterling qualities undoubtedly earned you the confidence, trust and respect of the APC stakeholders in Edo State leading to your nomination to run on a joint ticket with Mr. Obaseki.

“There is no iota of doubt that you are eminently qualified, competent, and has the right compliment of skills necessary to help advance Mr. Obaseki’s agenda to sustain the development and enviable legacies of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and thereby take Edo State to the next level,” they said.
