Happy birthday to a mother of virtue and excellence, Her Excellency, Mrs Maryann Shaibu

By Ik Osamede

It's rare to find a politician with the heart of gold, nobility and a propensity to do only good. But that is the befitting description of Her Excellency, Mrs Maryann Shaibu. She is a woman of faith and a mother that all can attest to that has a pure heart and continually stood as a strong support system to the sagacious Deputy Governor of Edo State, His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Comrade Phillip Shaibu.




She has distinguished herself in all areas of life. In all, she still remains a dogged comrade that fights for the emancipation of the downtrodden. This has been evident right from her student days. She brought that same heart of gold to public life. No one has ever crossed her path without testifying of her humility, peacefulness, kindliness and intelligence. 





During the election, she crisscrossed the length and breadth of Edo State with her husband, providing the needed support and also contributing to the marketability of our campaign. That singular action made the election D-Day a success as all necessary homework had already been done. 

With her most remarkable attention to details, 
she has contributed immensely to the success of Government policies. A beautiful example of this is the great ideas she brings to the table with the kind and outspoken First Lady of Edo State, Her Excellency, Mrs Betsy Obaseki. Great programs such as those leading to the betterment of the lives of young ladies, mothers and children have come to the fore due to this stellar association. Rehabilitation of returnees, flattening the curve of irregular/illegal migration, promoting the love of sports and rejigging the sports culture has been paramount in their nexus.



One can go on and on but doing so would risk this birthday felicitation turning into an article. But I would love to add here that even at the home front, she turned the residence of His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Phillip Shaibu, to not just the house of a political leader, but a place that everyone can call their home. Every visit of constituents to the home of the Deputy Governor, Rt. Hon. Phillip Shaibu culminated in a delicious plate of mouthwatering dishes. 






Little wonder, the two have been called a power couple. They both complement each other in the most perfect way. I dare to say that their life has proven yet again that indeed, behind every great man, there's a supportive woman behind him. And in this case, behind the dogged and sagacious people's deputy Governor, Phillip Shaibu, there's indeed a smart, noble and caring Maryann Shaibu. 

It is my prayer that this awesome birthday celebration of Her Excellency, will lead to greater heights and open doors of blessings and prosperity for you and your family in Jesus name, amen. Your life and mien has no doubt become a beacon of hope for all. Happy birthday once again, Iyemonyia as we say in Edo.
