Polls: We’ll end PDP reign in Bayelsa– APC threatens despite Sylva’s disqualification



By Peters Monday, Abuja

The All Progressives Congress, APC, National Campaign Council for the November 11 governorship poll in Bayelsa State has threatened to end PDP reign in the state despite the disqualification of its candidate, Chief Timipre Sylva.

The party had said that it would win the guber polls in the state against PDP, adding that the disqualification of its candidate, Chief Timipre Sylva can’t stop them.

This is according to a statement signed by the Chairman of the Council, Gombe State governor Inuwa Yahaya in Yenagoa during the weekend.

Yahaya, who led members of the National Working Committee, NWC, of the APC to Bayelsa, said the visit was to strengthen the synergy between the national leadership and the state chapter in order to ensure the party’s victory in the election.

According to him, the party’s candidate possessed the requisite experience and skills to govern the state, in addition to being widely accepted by the people.

He emphasised that the postponement of the official launch of the party’s campaign was to allow for adequate preparations to receive President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the event, noting that a new date for the launch would be communicated soonest.

” We therefore use this medium to call on all our teeming supporters and well wishers to come out en masse for the campaign rallies,” he added.
