Delta leaders endorse Sylva's governorship ambitions

25 September 2015, 12:25Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja – Political leaders in Niger Delta have called for the removal of Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, from his position as Chairman of the State’s Electoral Committee over alleged resistance to Timipre Sylva’s ambitions to be the next Bayelsa State Governor.

Meeting under the aegis of the Niger Delta People’s Movement (NDPM) in Port Harcourt, the leaders accused Governor Oshiomhole of conniving with some aspirants to sabotage Sylva’s efforts at the party’s governorship primary.

“We respectfully request the national leadership of the party to remove Adams Oshiomhole as the Chairman of the State’s Electoral Committee due to his inability to perform the duties required of him by the party,” NDPM spokesperson, Ibifuro Tatua.

The leaders also pledged to support Sylva for the state’s topmost political seat.

“The next governor should be someone who can govern, transform and develop the state as well as save it from drift after 2015. Bayelsa State requires in December 2015 the right leadership that will take it to the next level.

Bayelsa needs a leadership that will provide the momentum for growth and prosperity,” Tatua.

She said the group also called on APC leaders in the state to support Sylva.

“Let us ensure that this humble leader becomes our governor in December 2015.” – CAJ News
