In preparation for the next year gubernatorial election in Edo State, the governor of Edo State and his Deputy are presently in a state of love lost.



Reports have it that, Governor Obaseki is not supporting the imminent ambition of his deputy, Philip Shuaib to succeed him, and the governor is doing everything in his capacity to tame the deputy governor.

Meanwhile, a Federal High Court in Abuja has issued a temporary order stopping the move by the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki to impeach his Deputy, Phillip Shuaib over this irreconcilable differences.

Justice Ahmed Ramat Mohammed issued the temporary order on Friday while ruling in a motion on notice filed by Shuaib, praying the court to stop the move to ease him out of office by his principal.

In the ruling on the motion argued by Moses Ebute SAN from the Chambers of Ogwu James Onoja SAN in Abuja, Justice Mohammed directed the parties in the suit to maintain “Status Quo Ante Bellum”.

The order for the status quo ante bellum released on Friday, is to be in force till the time the defendants shall show cause as directed in another ruling of the Court made on July 27th, 2023.

By the order of ‘status quo ante bellum’, parties are to remain in the positions they were before Shuaib’s suit marked FHC/ABJ/ CS/1027/2023 was instituted against the defendants.

Shaibu, in his originating summons, prayed the Court to determine whether, in view of the provisions of sections 186 and 193 of the 1999 Constitution, Governor Obaseki has the power to instigate the IGP and SSS to harass, intimidate, molest and prevent him from accessing his office to carry out his constitutionally guaranteed duties.
