Chief Ndutimi Alaibe, pioneer Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty for Niger Delta militants, on Thursday, said he would deploy the amnesty template to tackle insecurity in Bayelsa if elected governor.

Alaibe said that his blueprint for youth development would address the challenges of cultism and drug addiction which fuel crime amongst the youths.

He noted that his desire to join the guber race in Bayelsa was to ensure the use government platform for economic development and prosperity for the benefit of the people of the state.

He said that he will blend his private and public sector experiences to use investment capital to drive the development of infrastructure in a sustainable manner.

Alaibe, a former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) said his tenure led to the conception of the 97.6-kilometre Ogbia – Nembe road jointly funded by government and private sector.

“The rate of crime in Bayelsa is of great concern to me as a parent and I have done it before, this is not a time to apportion blames, and somebody has to take responsibility to reform the youths because they are our children.

“We need to disarm them, demobilise, rehabilitate and reintegrate them into the society and with my inherent capacity to solve social problems; this can be tackled in six months.

“My plan for the state is very detailed and robust anchored on unlocking the maritime potentials of Bayelsa to create jobs and wealth. The idea is to augment to revenue accruable to the state with investment capital.

“I shall be unveiling my plans to the people of Bayelsa as well as the key payers in the economy as soon as I return my nomination forms ahead the September 3 rimaries of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),” Alaibe said.

He said that he was convinced that he would realize his governorship ambition on the PDP platform and explained that his foray into the All Progressives Congress in 2015 was due to ‘exigencies of the time’. 

Alaibe alongside 14 others have purchased the expression of interest forms of the PDP to run for governorship primaries of the party ahead the Nov. 16 governorship elections in the state.

Aspirants who also collected the PDP nomination forms include Dr Ayawei Nimbofa, Chairman of Bayelsa Board of Internal Revenue, former cabinet member in the state, Mr Reuben Okoya, and an ex-militant leader, Great MacIver.
