A statement by the Director of Media and Publicity, Sylva-Igiri Campaign Organisation, Chief Nathan Egba said Sylva has the capacity to defeat Dickson in any electoral contest in Bayelsa state, particularly the re-run polls scheduled for January 9 , 2015 in Southern Ijaw Local Government and other polling units across six local governments in the state.
He said:”the Sylva- Igiri Campaign Organisation is poised to galvanise our support-base in order to repeat the same feat we performed in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area and some other polling units across 6 Local Government Areas.
“Our strength is in the fact that majority of the people of Southern Ijaw LGA are with us and are still committed to standing by us through this whole process in order to eventually celebrate a hard won victory.
“Like you all know that our revered and well-respected Deputy Governorship candidate, Elder Wilberforce Igiri and our indefatigable State Party Chairman, Chief Tiwei Orunimighe a former Local Government chairman, are all from Southern Ijaw Local Government Area.
“We, therefore, call on our people to remain steadfast and vote the APC come January 9th in the rescheduled election.”
