By Chris Suleiman, Abuja

There seems to be no end to the crisis rocking the Bayelsa chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a faction of the party in the state fingered the state governor Sarieke Dickson as the brain behind the crisis rocking the Bayelsa’s APC.


Factional Chairman of the party in Bayelsa, Chief Fafi Joseph on Tuesday said the State Chairman Chief Tiwei Orunimighe, his deputy and Secretary as been suspended for engaging in anti-party activities and romancing governor  Sarieke Dickson who they accused of sponsoring the crisis.

Fafi who stormed the National Secretariat of the party in Abuja in company of the state executive members to petition the National Leadership of the APC over the crisis rocking the party, which they said Governor Dickson is bankrolling the crisis.

The Fafi-led faction said the party’s constitution empowers him to sack the Chief Tiwei Orunimighe-led leadership who had earlier announced the suspension of former governor of the state and leader of the party in the state, Chief Timipre. Sylva. 

The group also accused the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party. Mr. Timi Frank of having hand in the crisis, which they said was a revenge mission against chief Sylva.

The claimed that Mr.  Frank was only a Bayelsan by birth, but politically from Sokoto who does not know his unit in Bayelsa State.
“Timi Frank, by birth is a Bayelsan, but politically is not a Bayelsan, I say this because, I was at the National Convention of the party, Timi Frank was never and is never the candidate of our party, the slot Timi Frank is occupying is not the slot of  Bayelsa state is for Sokoto State.

“This is a kind of a revenge for him he is attacking the leadership of the party, even the exco we never wanted him, but some forces want him to be there, because he is their boy. Then Sokoto State Governor Aliyu Wamakko to allow peace to reign gave him the position.
