Bayelsa APC raises alarm on smear campaign against party

Nathan Tamarapreye, Yenagoa

The All Progressives Congress (APC) Bayelsa says it has uncovered a plot by Governor Douye Diri’s administration to embark on a campaign of calumny to tarnish the reputation of the party and its governorship candidate Chief Timipre Sylva.

The disclosure is contained in a statement issued on Sunday by Chief Denis Otiotio, Chairman, the Bayelsa Chapter of APC.

“The Governor Douye Diri-led administration has perfected plans to use some disgruntled politicians on an imminent campaign of calumny against the APC and its Governorship candidate in Bayelsa State.

“The sordid plan is to install hirelings and mercenaries on major media outlets to masquerade and speak as APC chieftains in an infernal bid to discredit the party and its governorship candidate Chief Timipre Sylva.

“It is sad that Governor Douye Diri who never won the 2019 elections has decided to invest in pettiness, anxieties, and frivolities and has cowed to its basic instincts in the face of credible alternatives in a desperate attempt to deceive the good people of Bayelsa State

“The general public is advised to take note and discountenance media outings from pseudo, fake and emergency figures springing out of nowhere to assume the status of APC chieftains or members,” Otiotio stated.
