Group bemoans APC factionalism in Bayelsa

24 August 2015, 13:18Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - The Niger Delta People’s Movement has raised concern at factionalism within the All Progressives Congress in Bayelsa State.

It laid the blame on former Chairman in the state, Richard Kpodo, accusing him and alleged associates working for the interest of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Director of Communications of the Niger Delta People’s Movement, Ibifuro Thompson Tatua, thus urged Governor, Timipre Sylva, to ignore Kpodo and his alleged friends and get on with important matters.

“In any system, there are always destroyers. Oyegun and Sylva should look away from these destroyers," she said.

Tatua alleged Kpodo and his said co - travelers were executing a carefully designed plan to discredit Sylva and destabilize the party to further their selfish ends.

On calls to oppose the leadership of Sylva in the state, the organisation described Kpodo’s views as "a display of outright malice and envy against Sylvam"

“This is callous. This is certainly a provocative act. Bayelsans must condemn the evil machinations of Kpodo, his highly contagious annointing to lie and the satanic grace to mislead the people.”

Comment could not be obtained from Kpodo.
