The Governor of Bayelsa State, Douye Diri, has mocked the candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the upcoming November 11 governorship election in the state, Timipre Sylva.
Diri took this action after Sylva was delisted from the candidates lists, by the Independent National Electoral Commission
The governor who commented while speaking at the Igbedi community, Kolokuma/Opokuma Local Government Area of the state on Friday, said Sylva was having sleepless nights, which will continue due to INEC’s action.
He maintained that the former governor remained disqualified based on the first amended INEC list.
He however urged the people of Bayelsa State not to waste their votes on a party that is not on the ballot.
He said: “Those whose names have been delisted by amendment number one of INEC can no longer sleep. They will continue to have sleepless nights.
“In our second tenure, the other roads that will be important to Bayelsa and even the people of Delta State and for the use of our airport will be to connect Igbedi to Kaiama. That will be the next project we will embark upon in our next tenure.”
