Yenagoa—The governorship candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC, and former governor of Bayelsa State, Chief Timipre Sylva, says he is ready and willing to compete against Governor Seriake Dickson at any electoral contest.
Sylva, who boasted that he would emerge victorious, accused the incumbent, Dickson, of engaging in underhand tactics to win.
The APC candidate, through the Director, Media and Publicity, Sylva-Igiri Campaign Organisation, Chief Nathan Egba, said that it was for this reason that the party protested the alleged illegal cancellation of the Southern Ijaw council election.
He said: “It is for this reason that the APC vehemently protested the illegal cancellation of the Southern Ijaw election results which clearly would have put us well ahead of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. But with all the stakeholders having agreed on a new date, the Sylva- Igiri Campaign Organisation is poised to galvanise our support-base in order to repeat the feat we performed in Southern Ijaw council and some other polling units across six local government areas.
“Our strength is in the fact that majority of the people of Southern Ijaw council are with us and are still committed to standing by us through this whole process in order to eventually celebrate a hard-won victory.”
