APC Bayelsa primary: Party summons Alaibe, Sylva to Abuja

Following inconsistency in the outcome of the Bayelsa State governorship primary of All Progressives Congress (APC), the party hierarchy may have invited the two top contenders, Timi Alaibe and Timi Sylva to Abuja, reports ITRealms.

This is coming as one of the top aspirants, Mr. Timi Alaibe, was allegedly reported to may have dumped APC for the Labour Party (LP) in effort to realise his ambition.

ITRealms also reports that the leader of the party committee to the Bayelsa State, Gov. Adams Oshiomole has asked Chief Timi Sylva to show his certificate of return from the primary if he really won the primary purportedly conducted in line with the party guidelines.

Meanwhile, a source close to the former chairman of Niger Delta Development Commission, who pleaded anonymity, said that Alaibe was disappointed by the outcome of the governorship primary election conducted by the Adams Oshiomhole committee in which former governor Timipre Sylva allegedly emerged winner.

Alaibe once had a relationship with the LP on which platform he tried unsuccessfully to run in 2003.

He was said to have complained bitterly about the process of the election which was seen as “flawed, manipulated and unacceptable”, and as such he would have to look elsewhere where he could possibly realize his governorship ambition.
