APC Presidential Primary: Buhari Wins Big with Leading Votes in Bayelsa

Hope shines brighter for President Mohammadu Buhari’s second bid to the presidency as members of the Bayelsa State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), voted massively for his candidacy with over 200,000 in the 2019 Presidential elections.

The exercise which took place in the 105 wards of the state  was based on the famous Option A4 model adopted in the June 12, 1993 Presidential Election.

It is a method whereby eligible voters cue behind the contestant of their choice .

Addressing members of the party shortly before proceeding for the exercise, Minister of State for Agriculture and Rural Development, Senator Heineken Lokpobiri, who served as Bayelsa State Returning Officer for the presidential primary, called for peace while expressing the party’s readiness to take over the mantle of leadership in the state.

Former Governor of Bayelsa and leader of APC in the state, Chief Timipre Sylva, voted at Brass Island as thousands of townsmen queued behind him.

Addressing party members just before voting began, Sylva heaped praises on Buhari while explaining why the president deserved continuity

“My vote will go for President Buhari because he has shown a genuine zeal to make things right, to mend our country and to forge ahead with socio-economic prosperity. Even as a state, we have not had it so good for a long time, there are positive signs of federal presence in the state and I’m sure more will follow,” he said
