Bayelsa Governorship: Tinubu Moves Against Spoilers, Asks Timipre Sylva To Contest
Former governor of Lagos State and All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has called on Chief Timipre Sylva to contest the December 5, 2015 Governorship election in Bayelsa State.
Tinubu also charged Bayelsans to ensure that Sylva becomes the next governor of the state in view of placing the state on the right path.
“I want him to contest the governorship election because of his proven leadership qualities and our belief that he can bring change to the state” he said.
Tinubu who met Sylva at his Abuja home not only endorsed him as the party’s consensus candidate for the December 5, 2015 governorship election but commended him for his contributions to the development of the party in Nigeria, particularly Bayelsa State.
“It is time for Bayelsans to unite and support a person who can effectively enhance unity, provide opportunities for all and lead the people in a different direction”
He expressed total and unreserved support for Sylva’s aspiration to clinch the party’s ticket and governorship seat.
He mandated APC leaders and members in Bayelsa State to support his choice
"If you want change, if you're unhappy with the direction of Bayelsa State, then you must join the governorship race and change the state for the people”.
Tinubu, who also described Sylva as an agent of change, is pushing for the former governor of Bayelsa State, Chief Timipre Sylva, to occupy the governorship position.
