He said “I know Sylva has been here as governor,he has traveled wide, he’s well incubated,with his wealth of experience as minister of petroleum he was influential in the passing of the PIB Act and I know a lot more,with his wealth of experience and contact .

This is not a borrowed crowd,this is a clear testimony,the voters are being educated,they listen to radio the way you do,they are well mobilize and constantly keeping the tempo till 11th November not just winning election, because we know the tricks of the PDP,what they are good at is always going to court and am very happy we just won them in appeal and we will continue to win them, not until they ambush us,after winning the election,we will follow up until we are sworn in and take governance.”

The Governorship Candidate of the APC, Chief Timipre Sylva while addressing mammoth crowd who trooped out to welcome him,promised to resuscitate the Peremabiri rice farm in Peremabiri community, of Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of the state, to cause agricultural revolution and improve the economy.

Sylva, assured them of rolling out projects and programmes that will improve their lives if voted in as governor and not to jeopardize their confidence on him.

At Eniware and Opuama, Sylva said one of the challenge in the state was the lack of jobs for the youths and women which the current Government of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has failed to address over the years, adding that his developmental plans for the people will capture unemployment.

He promises infrastructural development and the construction of roads to link other communities so that the agricultural revolution will be effective and profitable to all.

He said”Education, human capital development, job creation and other developmental needs will be spread evenly to all the communities across the LGA and not deny any community the dividends of democracy”

Speaking to the crowd at Ekowe community, the former Governor of Bayelsa State re-echoed that his agenda will bring about the real prosperity for all, adding that there was no reason the people living in poverty in the midst of God’s given endowment.

He reiterated that he would empower Bayelsans through human capital development, education and infrastructural development in addition in developing the agricultural sector and creating a gas based economy to employ virile young men and women.

His words ”We will bring electricity and provide security. Resuscitation of the Peremabiri rice farm will be too on our agenda. We will take advantage of it to feed Bayelsans and the whole of Nigeria.

Our youths will be adequately and gainfully employed. A handful of our youths have no jobs, and it’s a great concern to me. If they are not employed, they will use their energy on things that will not also be beneficial to us.

“We are fishermen by nature, so we will provide fish to feed the country. I have gone across the communities, there’s nothing significant that represents the opposition PDP in this area, that means we are coasting to victory here. For those who have defected to our party, APC, you will never regret your actions.

We have an agenda that will uplift your lives, human capacity development, education and empowerment, infrastructure and roads. I will connect Opuama to Angiama leading to Yenagoa. We will create an economy that bring jobs for our youths and women.

When you vote for us on November 11, it’s for the destiny of your community and to better your lives. I assure you all that we will do better than the current governor whose agenda is unknown. Your destiny is in your hands.

Since Sylva left as governor over twelve years ago, the same one road he constructed has been the one in the community.

Spread the love
