The All Progressives Congress (APC), Bayelsa State Chapter, has thanked the people of the state for voting overwhelmingly for our party, and defending the votes.
A press statement made available to this site by the state publicity secretary Mr. DpifieBuokuribo stated that what transpired in the election shows clearly that all along, the people had been robbed of the right to choose the leader they desire.
The APC in Bayelsa State is thankful that despite the intimidation, lies and fake news employed by Governor Henry Seriake Dickson and his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the people stood with the APC.
The publicity secretary said the party would have rejected the results in several parts of the state where there were glaring cases of electoral fraud perpetrated by the PDP. But that would serve no useful purpose. It would only heat up the polity.
However, the laws are clear on the steps to take in trying to redress poll injustices. The party will, therefore, back our candidates who are directly affected by the PDP-sponsored malfeasances in the event of litigation at the electoral tribunal.
In the out-going Bayelsa State House of Assembly, the APC had one seat. From the results declared so far by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the party now has four seats. Three seats were declared inconclusive. Those seats were won by the APC. The party shall continue to defend its victory with all the legitimate force at our command, the party concluded.
