Bayelsa Guber: Why I Tell My Supporters To Vote APC Governorship Candidate —Aggrieved Lokpobiri
The immediate past Minister of State for Agriculture and one of the aggrieved governorship aspirants in Bayelsa state All Progressives Congress (APC). Senator Heineken Lokpobiri, has asked all his supporters in the state to vote for his party in the forthcoming governorship election.
Lokpobiri, however, insisted on his case against the party which the court has already fixed November 14 as judgement day.
Speaking after a closed door meeting with the National Chairman of APC, Adams Oshiomhole and some serving governors of the party, Thursday in Abuja,
Senator Lokpobiri, who is the immediate past Minister of State for Agriculture, also that he has ever condemned the party’s flag bearer, David Lyon, as an incompetent candidate.
The Bayelsa born politician said regardless of what will happen in his case against the party as a result of the governorship primary in Bayelsa that is fixed for judgment on Nov. 14, 2019, his supporters should vote for APC.
“The reason why I’m here is to pay a courtesy call on the National Chairman but having been spoken to on the party in Bayelsa which I have a great respect for and the President. As a very strong member of the APC, I have come to formally tell our chairman and to speak to Nigerians in particular, the electorates in Bayelsa state that all of them should vote for APC regardless of what will happen in the matter that is fixed for judgment on November 14th, 2019.
“I told my supporters even before I came for this visit that no matter what happened in court I will remain in APC having served as Minister under this administration. There is no way, because of the outcome of the governorship primary that will make me to leave APC. We are working and campaigning at different level.
“I always advise that anybody that has grievances against the party, the only place to go and resolve those grievances is the court.
“So, whatever is happening in the matter that is pending in the court is not an infraction on any part of our party’s constitution, “he said.
