Naija News reports that Governor Nyesom Wike and Timi Alaibe also failed to attend the rally that was held yesterday, Wednesday, at the Oxbow Lake Pavillion in Bayelsa State.
Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had fixed the State Governorship Election for November 16th.
Speaking at the rally to kick start the party’s campaign, PDP Chairman, Uche Secondus, stated that the ruling party will resist any attempt by security agencies to rig the election for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The PDP chairman charged Bayelsans to vote his party, stressing that the ruling party remains the only party to take the state forward.
Also speaking at the rally, Governor Seriake Dickson said the PDP had been the only platform that had given people face and voice in Nigeria.
“PDP is the only Ijaw man party that all can feel and be carried along. “Sen. Douye Diri is the only one that can consolidate on the restoration government to take the state forward.
“I want to appeal to our people to vote massively for the PDP as we do not know any other party,” he said.
In his remarks, the governorship candidate, Sen. Douye Diri, promised to continue the good work of the administration of Governor Dickson.
Those at the rally include former Senate President, Adolphus Wabara; Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta, Gov. Emeka Ihedioha, Gov. Seyi Makinde of Oyo state and Gov. Bala Mohammed, among others.
