The deputy governor of Edo state, Philip Shuaibu, says he has no problem with the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He said: “I suffered to build APC if I look back and see what I have laboured for. But what I am happy about is that I am happy to consolidate and make history on the issue of godfatherism in Edo state”.
Speaking about his experience in his new party, PDP, Shuaibu said the opposition party is completely different from his former party.
He said the PDP has a better way of quickly resolving his issues amicably.
