PDP Accused of Sponsoring Banditry During Bayelsa Election

The leaders of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state has been accused by the governorship candidate of the APC in Bayelsa State, Chief Timipre Sylva for sponsoring banditry during Saturday’s governorship election in the state.

Sylva at his coastal Okpoama hometown in Brass LGA of Bayelsa state also called on INEC to look into the problems associated with card readers.

Although, the card reader read the former governor’s PVC successfully in record time, but failed to read the PVCs of some other voters.

Sylva said the APC in Bayelsa had told the police before the election that PDP leaders in the state and officials of state government were stockpiling arms for the election.

He said contrary to the claim by Governor Seriake Dickson of the PDP, election calmly and peacefully took place in his LGA.

Sylva also lamented attack on the house of the Minister of State for Agriculture and Rural Development, Senator Heineken Lokpobiri in Ekeremor, the headquarters of Ekeremor LGA of Bayelsa State.
