INVESTIGATION: Why Timipre Sylva Is Desperate For Bayelsa APC GUBER Ticket


Contrary to the general believe and insinuation in some quaters that the National Leadership of the All Progressive Congress(APC) ought to have allowed the embattled former Governor of Bayelsa and Leader of the All Progressive Congress in Bayelsa Chief Timipre Sylva to be the parties flag bearer ahead of the December 5th Governorship election in the State,PUO REPORTS has a first class information on why the Former Bayelsa Governor is desperate for the ticket.

During the formation of the APC in Bayelsa State,Sylva who was removed as Bayelsa State Governor in 2012 due to his poor Performance while in Office,former Governor of Rivers State Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and Mr.Preye Aganaba among others were Top politicians from the South South region(Rivers and Bayelsa) that were left to form the APC in Bayelsa State.

Although most person have believed that Chief Timipre Sylva single highhandedly established APC in Bayelsa State,but that is very far from the state,Chibuike Amaechi contributed almost 50 percent to ensure APC was established in Bayelsa State.

Politics they say is battle of supremacy,hence former Governor of Bayelsa State Chief Timipre Sylva saw Amaechi as a threat to his reign as a leader of the APC in South South Region,while Amaechi risked his life for the APC and Buhari’s ambision,Timipre Sylva was battling with the EFCC over a 150 Count charge of corrupt deals leveled against him.

Recall that Sylva was among the First set of  politicians that congratulated the Recently appointed Secretary to the Government of the Federation,Sylva it was gathered trow a party in jubilation that Amaechi has lost out from the APC power sharing,and it was an opportunity for him to reign in South South,therefore to achieve that,he must get the BAYELSA APC Ticket.

Sylva who was told by President Mohammadu Buhari to shun his ambition,disobeyed the President and the Party National Leadership to purchase the nomination form,in a bid to emerge as the APC flagbearer and subsequently Governor of Bayelsa State,which may pave way for him to be seen as the South South Leader of the Party.

The Presidency got his intention,there comes Adams Oshiomole,a man friday of Amaechi who was drafted to oversea the conduct of the Bayelsa APC Primaries,the purported victory of Sylva was aborted when Adams Oshiomole openly said he never declared anybody winner due to the violence that erupted at the Venue of the primaries.

Just like how Akpabio ensured Amaechi was ridiculed out as Nigeria Governors Forum Chairman,thereby paving way for him as Chairman of PDP’s Governors Forum,Sylva is not resting to ensure he rules over Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi
