Bayelsa Guber: APC insists on conducting fresh primaries

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has insisted that it will conduct fresh primaries in Bayelsa, starting on Tuesday.

Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State, chairman of the 7-man electoral committee, last week dismissed the reported emergence of former governor of Bayelsa State, Mr Timipre Sylva, as the party’s governorship candidate for the December 5 election, saying no primaries took place, on Tuesday as planned because of alleged disruption of the process by hired thugs.

He alleged that members of his committee, including himself, were kidnapped and held hostage by thugs allegedly loyal to one of the governorship aspirants a former governor of the state, describing incident as unfortunate.

The former Governor of the State governor, Chief Timipre Sylva, also recently dared the National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun over the cancellation of last Tuesday’s primary of the party in Bayelsa State insisting that he remains the APC governorship candidate for the December 5, 2015 election.

More details soon
