Bayelsa: APC guber candidate accuses PDP, security agents of

Timipre Sylva, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the ongoing governorship poll in Bayelsa State, has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and security agents of harassing his supporters.

Disclosing this after casting his vote on Saturday at Ward 4, Unit 4 in the Brass Local Government Area of the state, Sylva said security agents were “playing on the side of the PDP”.

Sylva added that violence has been recorded in Yenagoa, the state capital, alleging that an APC member was shot.

“There is a lot of violence from the PDP trying to molest our voters with security (agents). In fact, in some cases, it is believed by our people that we are running the election, not against PDP but against security (agents) but we are containing it.”

 “There is a lot of improvement on the part of INEC but there is still room for improvement”, Sylva commended the electoral umpire.
