As the upcoming Edo Governorship Election gathers momentum, the aspiration of Edo State Deputy Governor, Rt Hon Comrade Philip Shaibu for the number one seat has received a boost from students of the University of Benin, UNIBEN.

The students who were led by past and serving leaders of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, including EXCO members of several departments converged on the Campaign Office of Shaibu in Benin City, to pledge their support for his governorship ambition.

Some of the students who spoke were Comrade Gilbert Success, aka UNIBEN Oracle, Comrade Gerald Nnamdi and Comrade Happiness Ugheghele. They took turn to pledge their unflinching support for Shaibu as he threw his hat into the ring, Monday.

They were unanimous in describing Shaibu as one of their own who has represented the youths very well both as a former National President of NANS and in the political space as a parliamentarian and serving Deputy Governor.
