Bayelsa guber: Nembe has rejected your lies, blackmails – APC’s Sylva tells Diri


The Bayelsa State Governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Timipre Sylva, has told the state governor, Douye Diri, to allow the people of Nembe to breathe, saying the entire community has rejected all the lies he told them on Thursday during the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign in the area.

Sylva, speaking through his Special Assistant on Media and Public Affairs, Julius Bokoru, said the governor went to Nembe to campaign for his elusive reelection but could not point at any reasonable projects he executed in the area other than the Unity Bridge that was almost completed before he assumed office.

Sylva, who also hails from Nembe, asked Diri to stop dissipating his energy on Nembe, insisting that no amount of blackmail and desperation would make him win Nembe in the forthcoming poll.

He said, “Under Diri’s administration, Nembe had been subjected to dehumanisation, rights abuses, neglect and a theatre of war in pursuit of the governor’s selfish interest of winning election.

“Only last month, the Inspector-General of Police’s SWAT team rid Nembe of dangerous criminals, sponsored and inspired, of course by the current occupants of Creek Haven, who turned Opu-Nembe to a dystopian setting.


“Nembe cannot remain the theatre of Governor Diri’s frequent lies and even worse, the playground of his violent games and extreme political ambitions.”
