I will transform Bayelsa State ------- Dr. Imoro Kubor

By Kingsley Ebikibena

A gubernatorial aspirant on the platform of CHANGE ADVOCACY PARTY, CAP, has promised to transform Bayelsa State. He made this known to airport correspondents on his way from Abuja yesterday. He said in the spirit of political pluralism, he was running for Governor of Bayelsa State on the platform of the CHANGE ADVOCATE PARTY, CAP, because what Bayelsa State needs is rapid transformation. The retired Permanent Secretary and Russian trained aeronautic engineer expressed confidence that his professional background and work experience has equipped him to discharge the functions of Governor of Bayelsa State.

He appealed to Bayelsa people to look at the track records of candidates and not just political Parties because good governance depends on the character and preferences of the office holder and not the Party. He said he decided to contest the office of Governor of Bayelsa State on the platform of CAP to demonstrate that party affiliation diminishes when good governance rises. He assured his teeming supporters that more than ever, Bayelsa State needs a leader who is God fearing, mature and experienced.

It should be recalled that Dr. Imoro Kubor, a retired Permanent Secretary is an experienced technocrat who has been angling to run for governorship of Bayelsa State. He had earlier complained about the absence of internal democracy within the PDP and non- availability of level playing ground for governorship aspirants.

In a related development, the aspirant has taken a swipe at the level of under-development in Bayelsa State. He said this when a group of youths under the aegis of BAYELSA YOUTHS FOR PROGRESSIVE CHANGE paid him a courtesy call in Port Harcourt. The CAP candidate assured his followers that his experience and track-record of performance will give him landslide victory to transform the State.

The spokesman of the Group Mr. Theophilus Miebi said they were at his residence to assure him of their support because among all the aspirants jostling for the Governorship of Bayelsa State, none parades his credentials and wealth of experience. Mr. Theophilus added that Bayelsans now understand that party affiliations are no longer important as far as good governance is concerned, asserting that good governance is a matter of conscience and the fear of God.

The Youth Group pledged its loyalty and support to the CAP Gubernatorial Candidate because according to them the CAP fits Dr. Imoro Kubor and he fits the bill. We are convinced that Dr. Kubor has all it takes to transform Bayelsa State, he said! It is essential to note that Dr. Imoro Kubor is the most experienced technocrat among those jostling for the governorship of Bayelsa State.

On his campaign strategy, Dr. Kubor said the aim of his campaign was not to condemn the failed policies of the Sylva administration or call attention to diverted resources, or demoralize those in power for non-performance but to engage in issue-based campaign, enlighten our people to know the difference between politics and governance. With the support of my teeming volunteers and the goodwill of Bayelsans, we intend to win the governorship election without pelting pebbles at our political competitors. Ultimately, power belongs to God and that is why we shall rule with the fear of God to offer service befitting of our enormous resources. Bayelsa shall be great again, Dr Kubor said!
