Thousands of indigenes and residents of Edo North Senatorial District yesterday peacefully protested against plot to impeach Edo State Deputy Governor Philip Shaibu.
The protesters asked Governor Godwin Obaseki to give peace a chance.

The demonstrators, who chanted anti-Obaseki songs, carried placards with inscriptions such as: “No to impeachment of Edo deputy governor”, “Peace cannot be kept by force, it can only be achieved by understanding”, “Give peace a chance” and “We choose peace against impeachment.”

Others included: “Edo North people are saying no to impeachment”, “Drop impeachment move against your deputy”, “We are saying no to impeachment of Deputy Governor” and “Edo people reject impeachment of the Deputy Governor”.

The protesters, who were mostly PDP members, supporters, grassroots’ mobilisers, lovers and admirers of Edo deputy governor, trooped to the streets to protest the allegations against him, which they considered as not only frivolous, but also a political vendetta.
