Sylva has accused President Buhari and the APC of playing Jonathan’s script in Bayelsa state.

” From the very day, I rejected the President’s offer to serve as a minister and told him I would want to run for the governorship seat, I knew they were up to something sinister about Bayelsa state.

“The APC and the President didn’t want me to fly the party’s flag. They wanted a weak candidate, to make it easy for the PDP in Bayelsa state. All in a bid to compensate former President Jonathan. And we know it! The event that played out during the primaries confirms it all. But for the resistance shown by majority of APC members in Bayelsa, Adams and his team would have had their way.

“The plot and hatred was even extended to my fundraising dinner. They boycotted it and even asked others to do same. Several appeals were sent to the President, but nothing worked.

“It took the intervention of Amaechi and a few others for me to even raise money for logistics. And that was after I painstakingly, made a case, that we need to win in Bayelsa to prove a point, and ginger our supporters in the south-south. Failure of which will mar our political fortunes in the region”. Sylva said.

Recall that Sylva petitioned the Attorney General of the Federation to prevail on INEC to declare him winner of the election in Bayelsa state.
