Governor Obaseki accepts Shaibu’s apology – moneyamebo

Date:

Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has accepted the public apology made by his deputy, Philip Shaibu, explaining that his faith makes it a duty for him to forgive.

In a letter titled, ‘Re: Public Apology By The Edo State Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu,’ the governor said that in good faith, he trusts that the public apology, as expressed by Shaibu, is genuine, following contrite steps to improve his conflict resolution skills.

The letter reads: “I have noted the public apology made by the Deputy Governor of Edo State, Philip Shaibu. This apology followed an aberrant behaviour that contradicts what the people of Edo State stand for.

“To name a few, the deputy governor needlessly filed unfounded petitions in the Nigerian courts restraining me, the state Assembly and security agencies from a non-existent impeachment process, followed by repeated breaches of protocol; unwarranted and unprovoked attacks in the media on my person and the state government.

“The media frenzy, as a result of the above and more, provided an impression of a crisis that has been precarious and distasteful to Edo people and across the world.

“Although these unwarranted provocations caused me severe personal discomfort, as a person of faith, I am under obligation to accept this apology, because, as they say, “to err is human, to forgive is divine.

“In good faith, I trust that the public apology as expressed by the deputy governor is genuine, following contrite steps to improve his conflict resolution skills. I also enjoin him to guide his proxies to act in accordance with his piety.”

Obaseki added that it was his sincere hope and that of his colleagues in the government, as well as well-meaning Edo people, that this rhetoric will end forthwith to enable the administration finish strong and deliver dividends of democracy to the greatest number of Edo people.
