APC Governorship rally in Bayelsa

LAGOS DECEMBER 3RD (URHOBOTODAY)-The show of solidarity was massive on Tuesday by the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa State and its governorship candidate, Chief Timpre Sylva, to wrest power from the Governor Seriake Dickson-led Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) come December 5, 2015.
All road led to Yenagoa as mammoth crowd of party faithful and leaders of the APC thronged the Samson Siasia Stadium to shower love on Sylva’s ambition to become the next governor of the state.

The National Working Committee of the APC temporarily relocated to Bayelsa as the National Chairman of APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun led other members of the committee to the rally described by people as APC’s icing on the cake ahead of the election.
Governors elected on the platforms of APC such as Adams Oshiomhole (Edo); Aminu Tambuwa (Sokoto) and Rochas Okorocha (Imo) represented by his deputy, Eze Madumere, were all in attendance.
The event was further spiced by the presence of the governorship candidates of the party in the South South states, who are seeking justice in courts, such as Dakuku Peterside (Rivers), Otega Emerhor (Delta) and Umana Umana (Akwa Ibom) including Senator Magnus Abe.
The Secretary to the Federal Government, Babachir Lawal, and some ministers and members of the federal cabinet graced the occasion.
The ranks of the PDP were further depleted and the chances of Dickson narrowed following the defections of serving commissioners and other officials of the government to the APC at the venue.
“There will be jobs, progress in this state. Everyone one of us looking for promotion will have it by the grace of God. You will achieve great things,” VP Osinbajo assured the people.
Also speaking, Tinubu whose name and presence excited the crowd, asked the people of the state to send PDP with its 16 years of ineptitude out of power with their PVC.
