Niger Delta leaders canvass support for Sylva
NIGER DELTA leaders have called on former factional chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa State, Richard Kpodo to desist from making provocative statements stressing that the people should be careful of those working for the interest of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The leaders also alleged that Kpodo and his associates are aiming at dividing the APC, destroying the solidarity and possibly provoking crises in the party.
While describing Kpodo’s campaign as that of mere calumny, the Director of Communications of the Niger Delta People’s Movement, Mrs. Ibifuro Thompson Tatua praised the APC National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun for his honesty and bravery in the management of the party as well as his inclusive strategy.
She also advised Odigie-Oyegun and former governor of Bayelsa State, Chief Timipre Sylva to look away from Kpodo and his friends and get on with important matters.
According to her, “In any system, there are always people of different opinions. Oyegun and Sylva should look away from this kind of people.”
On calls to oppose the leadership of Sylva in the state, the group said those saying that were only envious of the former governor and does not mean well for the party.
According to her, “This is callous. This is certainly a provocative act. Bayelsans must condemn it.
They also thanked the people for the confidence reposed on Sylva saying, “We thank the good and peace loving people of Bayelsa State who have refused to be hoodwinked by the tissues of lies and propaganda being woven and dished out by desperate politicians and their sponsors.
“Bayelsans are sick and tired of leaders whose only interest in politics is their pockets and that of their crooked and fraudulent clique at the expense of the masses.”
