After submitting his forms, Sylva said he is in the race to salvage the state and complete the good work he started but was not allowed to complete before he was forced out by a combination of forces from within and outside the state.
He accused the incumbent governor of the state, Seriake Dickson of abandoning most of the projects he executed when he was the governor.
Apart from Dickson, a former Nigerian Ambassador to Japan, Emmanuel Otiotio, also submitted his forms on Monday.
The two became the last set of aspirants to submit their forms at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja.
