Facts have emerged on why the former Deputy Governor of Bayelsa State, Chief Werinipre Seibarugu and members of the then state executive council parted ways with their former boss, Chief Timipre Sylva, who is now the leader of the All Progressive Congress APC, in the state.

Seibarugu, a close ally to Sylva, recently, led sixty-eight other aides of the former governor to the secretariat of the PDP to reaffirm their support and loyalty to President Goodluck Jonathan and the PDP-led administration in Bayelsa state.

Flanked at the event by his former colleagues in government, Seibarugu said the movement of their former boss to APC had nothing to do with their own decision to remain in PDP.

“We did not defect to the APC at any time, even our former boss, Timipre Sylva, has confirmed it before that we did not join him to APC”, he said, adding, “Our visit to the state PDP secretariat was to correct that wrong impression and we delivered our message to Governor Seriake Dickson who was on hand to receive us along with the leadership of the PDP in the state”.
