Members of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ward 11, Etsako West Local Government Area of Edo State, have asked the Deputy Governor, Mr. Philip Shaibu, to run for the 2024 governorship election in the state.

Ward 11 is where Shaibu hails from.

Members of the ward reached the decision at a carnival-like reception for Shaibu on his arrival at the ward meeting, of PDP Ward 11, Etsako West LGA where the Chairman, Igbafe Agbonoga, affirmed the Deputy Governor’s level of acceptability for the 2024 race among his people, party members and the populace.

The support for Shaibu is a pointer to the fact that the PDP governorship primaries would be a referendum for the Deputy Governor with a masterplan, on a mission for practical governance for all-round development of Edo State.
