The All Progressives Congress, APC, National Campaign Council for the November 11 governorship poll in Bayelsa State has said the party will triumph the election in spite of the disqualification of its candidate, Chief Timipre Sylva.
The Chairman of the Council, Gombe State governor Inuwa Yahaya, stated this when he spoke with newsmen in Yenagoa.
Yahaya, who led members of the National Working Committee, NWC, of the APC to Bayelsa, said the visit was to strengthen the synergy between the national leadership and the state chapter in order to ensure the party’s victory in the election.
He said that the party’s candidate possessed the requisite experience and skills to govern the state, in addition to being widely accepted by the people.
Yahaya further explained that the postponement of the official launch of the party’s campaign was to allow for adequate preparations to receive President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the event, adding that a new date for the launch would be communicated soonest.
” We therefore use this medium to call on all our teeming supporters and well wishers to come out en masse for the campaign rallies,” he said.
