Disregard ‘Elders Forum’, Bayelsa APC Urges Nigerians

By Chris Suleiman, Abuja

The Bayalsa State Chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has asked the general public to disregard a group parading its self as ‘Bayelsa APC Elders Forum’, which they said are impostor group, which was not known to the APC faithful both at the National level and state chapter of the party.


The Bayelsa chapter of the APC made this known in a press statement released in Abuja and signed by the party Secretary, Comrade Daniel Marlin a copy of which was made available to pressmen.

The statement read: “It has come to our notice that a certain group which calls itself the ‘Bayelsa APC Elders Forum’ have been going to press lately to complicate the ongoing crises in our state.  We wish to disown such a group as they are merely a make-shift lot drafted to do the bidding of their paymasters.

The group was further described as food-is-ready group, which is made up of nothing but recruits made up of friends and former aides of Chief Timipre Sylva the embattled leader of the APC in Bayelsa state.

The statement also read that; “ This group was absent in all the many battles of the Bayelsa APC including our difficult embryonic phase when we would have needed such a group going by the sheer elegance of the name they chose to call themselves.  The group is also not known to the national leadership of the APC. It is also not backed up by the constitution of our great party the APC.

The Bayelsa APC however revealed that, they are in touch with the genuine elders of the party in Bayelsa state who have generously offered advice and wisdom expected of elders.

“It is very curious, a shabby group in levels below obscurity would spring up just to discredit the Bayelsa state APC and it’s hard-bitten leadership.
