A mammoth crowd of PDP supporters and political associates waited all day to receive Edo State Deputy Governor, Rt Hon Comrade Philip Shaibu as he arrived at his Jattu country home.
Shaibu, who watched the finals of the WAFU B Women football tournament at the Samuel Ogbemudia stadium this evening, left Benin at about 6:30PM and arrived his country home at about 10:00PM to tumultuous reception of women, youth and even the elderly waiting patiently for his arrival.
The crowd which had waited all day at Utukwe, Market Square, received him and his wife, Maryann, with drums and traditional songs and led them on foot as they walked down to their residence, a journey of about 1/½ kilometres, singing praises of the State’s Number 2 Citizen.
Spokesperson of the Community, John Thomas, aka Uchor, assured Shaibu of their support at all times. He pledged their unalloyed loyalty and commitment to their son.
According to the Spokesperson, Jattu is ready to sink and swim with him in the course of his political journey.
