The Deputy Governor of Edo, Mr Pius Odubu, on Monday urged the public to discountenance rumour of face-off between him and his boss, Gov. Adams Oshiomhole, saying he had no problem with him.

Odubu stated this while fielding questions from newsmen after submitting his Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms for the governorship race in Edo, at the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Secretariat, Abuja.

He said, ''I enjoy a cordial relationship with my boss. He has said severally that I am the most loyal deputy in this nation.

''I don't think my ambition will have a negative impact on our relationship. I am from a family of record breakers and I believe we are in it to win it.

''If he had anointed anybody he will say so openly. That is still based on rumour and we are regarding it as such.''

On the allegation that some people were buying up Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) in the state, he said that he had heard the rumour.

''I heard the allegation that people are buying up PVCS. If they are doing that it's a wasteful venture. I condemn it in its entirety.''

It would be recalled that the APC in Edo was embroiled in some crises some months ago, but the party had constituted a fact-finding and reconciliation committee to resolve issues among aggrieved parties.
