A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Bayelsa State, Chief Perekeme Kpodoh has accused the National Chairman, Adams Oshiomole of shady and bias support to the former governor and minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva to deliver David Lyon as the party’s flag bearer over fake promises of oil bloc.
Chief Kpodoh, commenting on the outcome of the APC governorship primaries in Yenagoa, called on the national chairman, Adams Oshiomole not to be deceived by empty promises, into allowing the party lose the forth coming election with the fraudulent emergence of a flag bearer without capacity.
He said, “Sylva cannot single handedly give out oil bloc without the approval of President Muhammad Buhari. Such deceit would not be allowed. Oshiomole should know that what happened on Wednesday in Yenagoa is a fraud and a mockery of the APC.
“In a desperate bid to perpetuate the fraud, results were not signed by electoral officers and agents of governorship aspirants. The materials were moved from one hotel to the other until it was declared at Aridolf owned by the wife of the former president.
“Clearly the 45,000 members of APC who allegedly voted for Mr Lyon, is a message to the world that APC cannot win Bayelsa state.”
Kpodoh called on President Muhammad Buhari to intervene in the crisis rocking the APC in Bayelsa and convene a meeting of all governorship aspirants, the purported flag bearer, Chief Timipre Sylva and the national leadership of the party to discuss and resolve the crisis if the APC is still interested in the state.
