The former governor of Bayelsa, Timipre Sylva, who is APC’s candidate, restated his readiness to move the state forward if elected, saying that he would diversify and deepen the state’s economy.
"We have campaigned from community to community and I have promised my people that youth empowerment and job creation will be my priority.

Chief John Oyegun, APC’s National Chairman, urged the people to vote for the party that would guarantee development for Bayelsa.
"APC is the party that will take Bayelsa to the Promise Land, vote for the party and be free from darkness and backwardness," Oyegun said.
