Yenagoa—The governorship candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC, in Bayelsa State,  Chief Timipre Sylva, yesterday, dismissed as false, claims by some politicians in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, that he had withdrawn from the suspended governorship election in the state.

He described the claim as an act of desperation by the PDP in their fear of imminent defeat.

According to him, those members of the PDP who are spreading fabrications about his withdrawal from the suspended governorship contest were engaging in a failed effort to save their principal, Mr. Seriake Dickson, from sure and imminent defeat.

Sylva, who spoke through his media adviser, Mr. Doifie Buokoribo, yesterday, advised Dickson to stop dissipating energy on falsehood, hypocrisy, and deceit.

“Dickson should wait for the outcome of the governorship election and try to control his outbursts of fear and deceit, which cannot sway any Bayelsan, as the people already know better.

“The falsehood about Sylva’s withdrawal from the governorship race that Dickson had tried to mar with his uncivilised vituperations and open call for violence is part of the same strategy of deceit and violence, which he and the PDP had employed since the beginning of the election process.

“In lie after lie, which we have roundly exposed, Dickson has shown that he has nothing other than deception to offer the people of Bayelsa State in the on-going election. This latest chicanery about Sylva’s withdrawal, like the others before it, will not give Dickson any reprieve from the sure and imminent defeat awaiting him.”
