According to Chief Timipre Sylva, though the votes cast for President Muhammad Buhari was stolen during the 2015 Presidential elections, the love for President Buhari remained due to the ongoing road infrastructure to Otuoke, the Former President’s community, “Bayelsa State is for President Buhari and the APC. “

Sylva said “President Buhari loves Bayelsa people and that is why he is coming to the state next week. The last time, they colluded and did not allow some party members vote and feel secured, we are ready and we will resist them. We will show them that Bayelsa is an APC State.”

The former governor also accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the various security agencies deployed to the state during the 2015 Presidential election of allegedly colluding with the PDP to rob President Muhammad Buhari of his votes handed him by the people of the State.

Sylva, said the actual results which were allegedly stolen through manipulations by INEC, Police, PDP and others during the Presidential and Governorship election showed that President Muhammad Buhari and the APC won with wide margin but we’re denied at collation and announcement of result.

Ijaw Local Government area, vowed that the APC will resist any attempt by the INEC, Police, the military and the PDP to rob President Buhari of his votes in Bayelsa.

Sylva alleged that during the last elections including the 2015 Presidential election, the security agencies including the Police and the INEC did not do the right thing,” In the morning of the election, the DSS accosted me and harassed me not to move. And we can see individuals and results were being shunned out automatically by INEC. “

“The Police also did not do the right thing. They accosted APC boys during elections. This time, we will resist such illegal actions. We will not give in this time around. Police should do the right thing. We want INEC to do the right thing because they did not do the right thing during the last election.”

Sylva however called on APC members in the state to be wary of an alleged ongping stock piling of arms and ammunition by agents of the PDP in the state to intimidate and kill APC members in the state. “they stockpiling arms to kill the same people they promised to govern.”

“In the next elections, nobody can rob us of “election victories again. We will show Bayelsa and Nigerians at large that Bayelsa is for APC. Buhari has done well for the people of Bayelsa State in the areaaof roads, agriculture and many others. Buhari loves Bayelsa people and the Bayelsa people love him.”

On the alleged poor governance under Governor Seriake Dickson, Chief Timipre Sylva said the state has been thrown into orgy violence with frequent cases of cult killings, armed robbery attacks and total darkness due to poor power supply, “armed robbers and armed gangs have taken over Bayelsa. This administration sack at will And borrowed huge amount of money despite huge amount that have come to the state. Very soon, they will borrow our soul. “

“The only project they claim to be doing is the Cargo Airport project. They have been borrowing under the cover of the project. The project is the most expensive in the country. How many are we that the state government cannot take care of his people. Bayelsa people should shine their eyes. We have to chase them out and we must be peaceful. “
