Ahead of the November 16 governorship election in the Bayelsa State, the stakeholders meeting organised by the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC), held today.
However, Naija News learnt that the meeting was disrupted as elders from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress engaged in a heated argument.
Trouble started when the Chairman of the PDP Elders forum, Chief Francis Doukpola, claimed that the last general elections in the state were the worst election ever conducted in the state, adding that INEC has not done anything to correct it.
He also alleged that the APC caused violence in Nembe Basambiri community of Nembe LGA, which has led to indigenes scouting in other neighbouring communities as IDPs.
Reacting immediately, a stakeholder of the APC, Barr. Dennis Otiotio, who accused him of lying, shunned him, adding that he was part of the people causing troubles in the state rather than playing a neutral role.
The stakeholders’ meeting, had in attendance, the national chairman of the commission, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, however, himself and other dignitaries including top security agencies hurriedly left the venue of the programme.
