Political intrigue and power struggles can be complex and fascinating, but it’s essential to separate facts from rumors and speculation.

Asue Ighodalo, the governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for the forthcoming Edo State 2024 governorship candidate, has denied having any role in the impeachment of the former Edo State Deputy Governor Comrade Philip Shaibu.

In press statement released on Monday by the Asue Ighodalo media team and made available to our correspondent, it was noted that the response to recent unfounded accusations made by the former Deputy Governor Phillip Shaibu is necessary to clarify the record and unequivocally state that Ighodalo played no part whatsoever in the highly publicized process leading to Mr. Shaibu’s impeachment and subsequent dismissal by the Edo State House of Assembly.

The press statement reads in full:

“While we would not usually join issues in response to every passing comment, it has become imperative to address the recent spurious allegations by former Deputy Governor Phillip Shaibu.

“It is necessary for the record, and to state in no uncertain terms, that Mr. Asue Ighodalo had no role or involvement in any form whatsoever in the very public process leading to Mr. Shuaibu’s impeachment and subsequent removal from office by the Edo State House of Assembly.

“The claims by Comrade Philip Shaibu, the erstwhile Deputy Governor of Edo State, are completely without merit, and Mr. Ighodalo categorically distance himself from any such involvement. These allegations are clear attempt to unjustly tarnish his reputation and divert attention from the actual issues at hand.


“We urge the public and the media to disregard these false statements.

“Asue Ighodalo remains focused on running a governorship campaign based on issues, and devoid of distractions”.
