According to reports from Gistreel, on April 8, Godwins assumed office as the deputy governor of Edo, following the impeachment of Philip Shaibu, with the oath of office administered by the Chief Judge of Edo State, Justice Daniel Okungbowa.


During an appearance on Politics Today later that same day, Godwins emphasized that the people of Akoko Edo have always been his top priority.

He stated: “To be very frank with you, the Labour Party is not just a party but a movement I hold dearly. If I have the opportunity over and over, I will continue to thank them. 

“It was LP that gave me the platform, but like I told you, what informed it (defection) is Akoko Edo. It is my major project and we are predominantly APC and PDP.

“I am happy that these six months or what you called seven months are okay for me. The governor has told me in clear terms — we have discussed some critical issues and I have given him a needs assessment of our people. 

“I may not be able to do so much but I will make an impact that the people of Akoko Edo and Edo north will remember me for.”
