The People Democratic Party, PDP, has called on all their ward agents to be extra vigilant during the Saturday, January 9 rerun.

The party also accused Chief Timipre Sylva of inducing each INEC official with the sum of N1 million.

The Director of Publicity, Restoration Campaign Organisation, Chief Jonathan Obuebite, sounded the warning on Friday in Yenagoa.

He said, “In their desperation to win by other means at the rescheduled rerun election of Southern Ijaw and 101 other In Bayelsa State, the APC and its candidate, Chief Timipre Sylva, are set to bribe their way with one million naira to each INEC official.

“As a result of this desperation we have placed our agents for tomorrow’s election to be extra vigilant.  This is in continuation of their desperation as APC has since discovered that they cannot win PDP on a free and fair election.

“Just like they did during the December 5 polls, bulk of these money were currencies, as it is proven that APC is broke.” 

It would be recalled that the PDP, had prior to the December 5 election uncovered plans by the leading opposition party to induce voters with over N2bn fake naira note, which turned out to be true. 

While making this revelation in Yenagoa, Hon. Obuebite had called on the general public to examine the money they are collecting from the members of APC.

Describing the act as criminal and a punishable offence, under the law,  Obuebite had stated that,  “The printing and circulation of fake currencies was aimed at making up for the short fall in funding arising from the refusal of the Niger Delta Development Commission, (NDDC) to fund the campaign of the APC gubernatorial candidate, Chief Timipre Sylva.

Reports had It then that, President Muhammadu Buhari, personally stopped the NDDC from releasing about N4 billion that was meant to fund APC candidate for the December 5 election in Bayelsa State.

The PDP had prior to this period raised an alarm over plans by the NDDC to award of phony contracts to fund Sylva’s election. 

Having failed in this aspect, the party later perfected another plan to induce innocent voters with fake naira and dollar notes that are already in circulation.

The party called on the security operatives and other relevant agencies to step into the matter and bring the culprits to book.
