September 14, (THEWILL) – Bayelsa State Governor, Senator Douye Diri, has said the major challenge of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the State, ahead of the November 11 governorship election, is that it picked an unsellable candidate that has been rejected by his party members and the people.
Governor Diri noted that the APC candidate failed as governor as well as Minister of State for Petroleum Resources as he made no positive impact while he held sway.
He told his party members that the APC was not a problem to the PDP in the State but rather the candidate of the opposition party, Chief Timipre Sylva, who had been dumped by even his party chieftains due to his poor performance in public office.
Governor Diri spoke during a meeting with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stakeholders from Nembe Local Government Area of the State in Government House, Yenagoa, on Thursday.
He also stated that the APC joint ticket was equally questionable as Sylva’s running mate had very serious legal issues that border on criminal records.
