Bayelsa Poll: Diri Mocks APC, Sylva

Share this post

Bayelsa State Governor and the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Duoye Diri, has mocked the All Progressives Congress, APC, following the disqualification of its candidate, Timipre Sylva.

Recall that the Federal High Court Abuja on Tuesday disqualified Sylva from the November 11 governorship election.

In the statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Daniel Alabrah, Diri said, “Bayelsa needs an honest and sincere leader that is focused on its development and not a man widely known for deception.

“Timipre Sylva is a man you cannot trust. He displaced all those he promised that he would give the governorship ticket and turned around to become the candidate himself. A man who said a road from Yenagoa to Nembe was not economically viable; a man who proposed an airport but the site was turned into a ‘seaport’ after sinking in millions of naira of the state’s resources.

“When the immediate past governor built a very good airport, Sylva said it was a seaport but today he uses the same airport,” he said.
