Comrade Phillip Shaibu, Deputy Governor of Edo State, on Monday, debunked reports that he is unhappy with Governor Godwin Obaseki.
Speaking in an interview on Channels Television programme, Shaibu, however, said there are issues in PDP that need to be resolved.
He said, “I am happy with my governor and I have no problem with my governor. So, the issue of not being happy with my governor is not there. I remain absolutely loyal to my governor but there are issues that we need to resolve over PDP”.
There was disquiet in Edo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday over reports that Comrade Phillip Shaibu has concluded plans to dump the party following alleged rift over matters bordering on the running of the state.
It was gathered that Shaibu’s grouse centred on the refusal of the state governor, Godwin Obaseki, to appoint a cabinet one year after his election into the office for a second term.
It was gathered that Shaibu had series of meetings during his vacation abroad where the plan was hatched.
