JUST IN: Obaseki picks young engineer as new Deputy Gov

By News Desk

As part of measures to prevent leadership vacuum in governance, the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has picked a 38-year-old Engineer, Omobayo Godwin, as his deputy.

Obaseki picked the young engineer hours following impeachment of his former Deputy, Philip Shuaibu, who was shown the exit by the House of Assembly for leaking government secrets and perjury.

Already, friends and well-wishers have gathered at the inauguration venue for the swearing-in ceremony expected to occur on Monday.

Omobayo, who would be replacing Shuaibu after the swearing ceremony on Monday, was the Labour Party candidate for Akoko-Edo Federal Constituency during the just concluded 2023 general elections.

The newly chosen deputy governor graduated from the University of Benin (UNIBEN) with a B.Eng Degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering and Msc in Public Administration.

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.
