..De-campees are Diri’s friends, relatives

Amgbare Ekaunkumo, Yenagoa

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa State said it has registered 180,500 new members in the on-going registration and revalidation exercise of new and old members.

Mr. Alabo Martins the State Secretary of the party dropped the hint in a chat with newsmen in his office in Yenagoa, the state capital.

According to him, APC is the new bride which everybody wants to identified with, stressing that those decamping are doing so for personal reasons best known to them.

According to him “those who are decamping, if you look at them they are personal friends to the governor, close relatives and those from his local government area.”

On the insinuations that the leader of the party is running the party as a “one man show” Martins said the leader is sensitive to the plights and yearning of the party faithful who have the general desire to move the party forward.

“If the leader, Chief Timipre Sylva is running a one-man-show, he wouldn’t have produced David Lyon as a brand in the state. We won the governorship in the state in 2019 because the leader of the party gave the right direction.

He emphasised that for the period the leader of the party who is the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources has stayed in office he has brought visible infrastructural development to the state for “everyone to see.”

“As a Minister he brought the COVID-19 referral hospital, the Brass Fertilizer Company, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) tank farm, among others within this short period”.

“You know Bayelsans are not gullible people, so it is good to develop their minds than to develop their capacities”.

Martins admonished APC faithful in the state to be steadfast and be committed to the ideals of the party and expressed confidence that the party will bounce back stronger in 2023.

On the one year of the prosperity government of Douye Diri in office, he said the government has “nothing to show” for the one-year stewardship.

He described the government as “net builders” if you go to kpansia market they built nets around the market and the Tombia roundabout they built nets so I refer to them a “net builders”.
