The Peoples Democratic Party,  PDP,  has called on all their ward agents

to be extra vigilant during  the Saturday, January 9 rerun, just as they

accused Chief Timipre Sylva of inducing INEC officials with the sum of one

million naira  each.
The Director of Publicity, Restoration Campaign Organisation,  Chief

Jonathan Obuebite,  who sounded the note of warning  said,  “In their

desperation to win by other means at the rescheduled rerun election of

Southern Ijaw and 101 other In Bayelsa State,  the All Progressive

Congress,  APC,  and their candidate,  Chief Timipre Sylva, are set to

bribe their way with  an inducement of one million naira each INEC

official.”
Obuebite  further warned “as a result  of this desperation we have

placed our agents for tomorrow’s  election on high alert and vigilance

as APC has since discovered that they cannot win in a free and fair

election.”
He said  “just like they did during the  December 5 polls, the bulk of

their bribe money is in fake currencies,  as it is proven that APC is

broke.”
It  would be recalled that  the PDP,  had prior to the December 5 election

uncovered plans by the leading opposition party to induce voters with over

N2bn fake naira notes,  which turned out to be true.

While making this revelation in Yenagoa, Hon. Obuebite had called on the

general public to examine the money they are collecting from the members

of APC . Describing the act as criminal and a punishable offence, under

the law,  Obuebite had  said “the printing and circulation of fake

currencies was aimed at making up for the short fall in funding arising

from the refusal of the Niger Delta Development Commission, (NDDC) to

fund the campaign of the APC gubernatorial candidate, Chief Timipre

Sylva.
Reports had It then that President Muhammadu Buhari, personally stopped

the NDDC from releasing about N4 billion that was meant to fund the APC

candidate for the December 5 election in Bayelsa State.

It would also be recalled that PDP had prior to this period raised an

alarm over plans by the NDDC to award  phony contracts to fund Sylva's

election. Having failed in this aspect, the party later perfected another

plan to induce innocent voters with fake naira and dollar notes that are

already in circulation.
The statement called on the security operatives and other relevant

agencies to step into the matter and bring the culprits to book.
