Efforts by the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Bayelsa State, Chief Timipre Sylva, to have audience with President Muhammadu Buhari may have been  rebuffed.

A source in the Presidency stated that Buhari was not happy with the APC in Bayelsa  and  Sylva over alleged  pockets of violence during the rescheduled election in Southern Ijaw LGA.

The source stated,” Mr. President is angry over the overwhelming criticism and condemnation of the process by international observers, who did not mince words in describing the poll as a rape of democracy.

“Some of the observers are already seeing the APC-led Federal Government as lacking the capacity to conduct a free, fair and credible election in a state as small as Bayelsa. What happened in Southern Ijaw was  against every acceptable global democratic norm and practice.”
