Newly-elected flag-bearer of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the December 5 Governorship Election in Bayelsa State, Chief Timipre Sylva has berated the
Edo state governor, Adams Oshiomhole for failing to conduct a peaceful and credible primary election of the party.
Sylva who spoke shortly after he was declared winner of the primary said, “It’s been a long walk and I am very happy today to accept the victory that you have given to me for the second time.
This is only the beginning of the journey.
 Today I have seen that we politicians have a lot to learn from the military, what a serving Governor of Edo state of this country was incapable of doing just just a few days ago has been achieved by a retired general and his team.
“This tells you that we have a lot to learn about the military. I want to thank the security agencies that have been present since yesterday night until now and have kept the peace and make sure that this primary are rancour free,” he stated.
It will be recalled that Oshiomhole had berated Sylva for allegedly truncating the electoral process during an earlier APC governorship primaries in the state while Sylva described Oshiomhole’s words as a deliberate “act of mischief” and “lies”.
Shortly after that disputed election, the National Working Committee, NWC, of the APC replaced the Edo State Governor with Brig-Gen. Mansur Dan Ali (retd.) as Chairman of the Bayelsa gubernatorial primary election committee.
