Sylva blames PDP for APC Bayelsa problems

06 April 2016, 14:09

Bayelsa - Former Bayelsa State Governor, Timipre Sylva, has accused the People’s Democratic Party for destablising the problems afflicting the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa State.

He singled out incumbent governor, Seriake Dickson, of leading such a campaign through “discredited and suspended” officials of APC to cause internal problems in the APC.

“Of late, Dickson and his party, Peoples Democratic Party, have re-enacted their pastime of spreading falsehood about APC and its leaders in Bayelsa State and trying to create dissension where none exists,” Sylva said.

“They have now procured the services of some discredited officials of APC, who were suspended recently,” he further alleged, adding, “These renegades are being used by Dickson and PDP to spread wild, unsubstantiated allegations against Sylva and the Minister of State for Agriculture, Senator Heineken Lokpobiri.”

Crisis has beset APC in Bayelsa recently.

On Tuesday, the party disclosed Minister of State for Agriculture, Lokpobiri, was not yet a party member.

The party alleged Lokpobiri bribed Sylva to be nominated minister without being a member.

Sylva has been suspended.
