‘Quit governorship race in your own interest’ – PDP warns Sylva

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship Campaign Council in Bayelsa state has warned the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the November 11 governorship election, Timipre Sylva, to quit from the race as he doesn’t stand a chance of winning...READ THE FULL STORY HERE▶▶▶

The Director-General of the campaign council, Mitema Obordor, made this known during the party’s Sagbama Local Government Area Constituency 3 rally at Agbere community while continuing Governor Douye Diri’s re-election campaigns.

Obordor added that unlike the PDP’s candidate Diri, Sylva does not enjoy any level of acceptance across the state.

He said: “Let me begin my remarks with a call on Timipre Sylva to toe the part of honour and step down from this election.

“There are reasons I say this. The first is that for you to govern a state, you must be seen to be an honest person. You cannot say a thing today and turn 180 degrees tomorrow to do a different thing.

“The same man spoke publicly that the chapter of contesting for governorship was over in his life. So that man is dishonest as far as I am concerned.

“The second reason is that all other factors having to do with determining elections are against him. The number one factor is zoning. As far as Bayelsa State is concerned, the zoning principle favours the Central Senatorial District where our governor comes from.

“The third reason is acceptability. You can see the level of acceptance by the people of the duo of Governor Diri and his running mate, Senator Ewhrudjakpo.

“The fourth is performance. This governor has performed beyond reasonable doubt. Even his detractors have been put to shame that they have no option but to say governor we are with you.”
