The Bayelsa State Government has said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) under the leadership of former Governor Chief Timipre Sylva is a rejected party of sick and confused minds.
The state commissioner for information, Hon. Daniel Iworiso-Markson, said in a statement yesterday said that the APC had become a weak political party that has suffered the most debilitating and humiliating defections in recent history in the Nigerian politics.
Markson, who made the comment while reacting to a statement by the State Publicity Secretary of APC in Bayelsa state, Mr Ola Doifie, said that the APC is now desperate to cling unto lies and imagined stories as a lifeline after losing most of its members to the visionary leadership of the PDP led Restoration Government of the Honourable Henry Seriake Dickson.
The state government’s spokesman said that it would only take a band of unconscionable political desperadoes to criticize the well conceptualized and effectively executed Bayelsa International Airport.
He said that the APC should be ashamed of their record of failure in Bayelsa and should atone for their sins by towing the path of their compatriots who left the party for the PDP.
Markson said that the leader of the APC in Bayelsa, Sylva, failed woefully in the attempt to give Bayelsa and her people a desperately needed International Airport between 2007 and 2011 in spite of the huge resources at his disposal.
He alleged that Sylva used what should have been a laudable idea of an airport project to milk the state and siphoned billions of Naira into private pockets.
The commissioner said that the 44 houses of Sylva for which he was probed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission were screaming testimonial of the ‘kleptocracy’ unleashed on Bayelsa by the APC and its thieving maniacs.
The commissioner challenged the APC Spokesman, an aide of Sylva, to tell Bayelsans and Nigerians what his master did with N300 billion Agric Loan from the World Bank.
He also alleged that Sylvia’s APC fritted away N3 billion MDG Funds made available to his administration, known in Bayelsa as the era of the locust, in addition foisting a bond obligation of N125 billion which the current administration has drastically reduced through prudent management of available resources in an era of crushing recession.
