Spokesperson of the Niger Delta People’s Movement, Mrs. Ibifuro Thompson Tatua, has enjoined Bayelsans to come out en masse to support and vote for the former Governor of Bayelsa State, Chief Timipre Sylva, during the forthcoming governorship election.

According to her, “Bayelsa State needs an effective leader. Sylva represents very different vision for the future of the state. He has a vision that will finally defeat the unethical, incompetent Seriake Dickson led PDP leadership in the next election.”

She also advised Bayelsans at home and abroad not to be carried away by the alleged endorsement of certain people in the state.

Tatua said misguided attacks by some self-acclaimed leaders and their backers “would never deter Sylva from becoming governor of the state.”

Speaking in a breakfast session with leaders of major political parties in Yenagoa, Tatua said Sylva would make the difference in the politics and development of the state.

“Bayelsans have a choice in December to pick someone who can bring about a new direction in the state, or someone who seems to want to lead because they think they are entitled to lead. Bayelsa needs a new direction, and Sylva represents that direction,” she said.

Drawing inspiration from the good governance template as laid down by the group, Tatua said  Sylva’s  leadership would go beyond providing critical infrastructure, paying salaries, gratuities, pensions, employing large number of qualified people into the civil service and financing the education of thousands in local and foreign universities.

According to her, “Sylva will complete abandoned and all on-going projects in the state. He will find solution to the problems of the state, inculcate positive values like honesty, hard work, and fairness and ensure social justice and good governance in the state.

“Sylva will also encourage the poor and powerless to take part in the government of the communities and the state, promote grassroots economic development, prevent environmental degradation, help the poor people develop a clearer understanding of the social, political and economic factors affecting their lives, make the development process more accountable, transparent and participatory as well as provide conducive atmosphere for local and foreign investors.

“Sylva is committed to ushering in a brand new way of doing things for the state. He will get Bayelsa’s economic house in order, by ensuring progressive spending and social engineering policies in place.”
