“For me, that is the only issue I understood that may be a problem and that should not stop us. The important thing for us as an administration is for us to finish strong and try to complete everything we told Edo people we would do for them during our campaign,” he said.

On his relationship with the Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu, the governor said, “I have nothing personal against the deputy governor and never had. For me, the issues are very straightforward.”
