Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has denied rumours that he is having issues with state leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The governor made this known while addressing newsmen after a closed-door meeting with leaders of the APC in Edo North.

Obaseki and his Deputy, Philip Shaibu also visited the palace of the Otaru of Auchi, Aliru Momoh, to break the Ramadan fast.

Speaking, the governor disclosed that some politicians eyeing various appointments in Abuja are behind rumours of crisis in the party.

“I have gone round the state, Edo South, Edo Central and Edo North, to speak with the leaders of the party and the feedback I am getting shows that there are no issues in the party,” he said.

“There are some few people who are trying to jostle for positions they hope are available in Abuja and try to call it favour.

“As far as am concerned, we have one and a solid united party. We have all agreed that as government, we have done well and the people are happy with us.

“Our party is a progressive party. The party that believes in putting the people first but some individuals want us to put them first, which is against our party philosophy.”
