Governor Godwin Obaseki has appointed Omobayo Marvellous Godwins, a 38-year-old Engineer, as his deputy.

This follows the removal of Comrade Philip Shaibu as Edo’s Deputy Governor.

According to a profile of the new deputy governor released by the Edo government, Omobayo hails from Akoko Edo Local Government Area of the State and was born on July 19, 1986.

“He is a seasoned Engineer with a proven track record of progressive professional experience in the oil and gas sector.”

“He is a registered member of the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) and the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN).

“A thorough-bred young professional, he serves as a Senior Maintenance Engineer in Dresser Wayne West Africa Limited, cutting his professional teeth in the operations in the South-South area, providing top-notch services and growing the business in the region.

“He has also been active in politics in his local government, building bridges of trust with the people and mobilising them for common causes, breaking political barriers to the chagrin of his opponents,” the profile read.

If confirmed by the assembly, Omobayo would spend the remaining months in office with Obaseki.

Shaibu, the former deputy governor, was elected alongside Obaseki in 2016. Both of them sought reelection and won in 2020 despite leaving the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

However, Shaibu fell out with the governor after bidding to succeed him.
