We’ll work with Amaechi to sack PDP – Sylva


A former Governor of Bayelsa State and leader of All Progressives Congress in the state, Timipre Sylva, has assured that the APC will work with the Rivers State Governor and Chairman of Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Rotimi Amaechi, to flush out the PDP-led Federal Government in 2015.

Sylva stated this when he led party executives and supporters of the APC in Bayelsa State on a courtesy call on Amaechi at the Government House in Port Harcourt.

The former governor said they were in Rivers to show solidarity with Amaechi, adding that though President Goodluck Jonathan hails from Bayelsa, the majority of the people from the state were frustrated with his (Jonathan) administration.

“We of the APC in Bayelsa State have decided to come to you (Amaechi) to show solidarity, to tell you that not everybody in Bayelsa State is against progress, not everybody in Bayelsa State is an enemy of progress, that you also have a family in Bayelsa State that identifies with you all the way and we will stand with you all the way.

“When the time comes for us to sweep away the government of the day at the national level, Bayelsa people will stand by you and be in the vanguard of sweeping away this government that has brought only misery to the Niger Delta.

“The APC is the platform for progress. You (Amaechi) are an epitome of progress, not only in the Niger Delta but in Nigeria. Everybody that comes to Rivers State will bear witness to what you have done, to your commitment and we will stand by you and we will continue to support you,” Sylva said.

He described the APC as a better alternative to the PDP and added that the APC had provided a credible platform for progressives to come together and sweep away the corruption and ineptitude of the current administration at the federal level.

The former governor pointed out that Jonathan’s presidency had opened cracks in the unity of the people of the South-South geo-political zone.

He said, “Today, we in the Niger Delta have the presidency of this country, but what has this brought to us? It has brought divisions; in fact, put a crack in the unity of the Niger Delta.”
