Rivers 2019: APC Rescue Mission Has Begun – Sylva



Former governor and leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Timipre Sylva has declared that the peaceful party congresses at the ward and local government levels have shown that the party has begun its rescue mission to take over power in Bayelsa State in 2019/20.

Sylva,  who made this known during a World Press Conference at the party secretariat in Yenagoa shortly after the party local government congresses in the eight local government areas of the state commended the determination of party faithful by turning out in their large numbers to take part in the exercise.

According to him,  the congresses were just the beginning of the process. He advised party members to work hard to fulfill the party’s dream of taking over Creek Haven, the seat of power in Bayelsa state.

Speaking further, Sylva sais, “all I have to say is thank you for conducting yourselves very peacefully, that is to the APC members in Bayelsa state, you have really been very exemplary not only in Bayelsa state but in relation to the rest of Nigeria, I believe that no other state has conducted congresses more peacefully than Bayelsa state”.

“It was very peaceful last week, ward congresses came and went and this week, we have even improved on the record of last week. Of course in a political family like ours there will be a few disagreements and that is why I personally came here with the honorable minister to resolve all those issues. As we speak the congresses are going on very peacefully in all the eight local governments and my phones are open”.

“I have not heard of any  problem from any local government. The APC more than ever before in Bayelsa state is poised to take over the reins of government in this state.

As I told members of the APC at the stakeholders committee meeting yesterday, the APC belongs to all of us but the only way the APC can win is for us to stay together and be unified and I’m happy that these congresses have shown clearly that the APC has achieved this unity.If we are so united then I don’t see how any party can deceive us in any election in this state”.
