The All Progressives Congress (APC) has commenced its primary election to select a candidate for the Bayelsa State governorship election, which is scheduled for November 11.

The party’s chairman of the Primary Election Committee, Maj. Gen. A. T. Jibrin, confirmed this during a press briefing at the state party secretariat in Yenagoa, following a meeting with party stalwarts and aspirants.

Jibrin announced that the party will be using the option A4 for the direct primary election, which will take place in all 105 wards of the state. He further assured party members of a smooth, transparent, and peaceful primary election, with everything set in place for the exercise.

During the briefing, Jibrin also cleared six aspirants for the primary election, including former Minister of State, Petroleum and former governor of the state, Chief Timipre Sylva, and the 2019 governor-elect, Chief David Pereworimini Lyon. The other aspirants are Festus Daumiebi Sunday, Prof Ongoebi Etebu Maureen, Ogomade Isikima Johnson, and Joshua Maciver.

Jibrin said, “The committee has had series of engagements with the officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Bayelsa Police Command, Department of State Security Service, DSS, and Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, to seek advice on how to go about the exercise peacefully according to the regulations.”

He also explained that the voters’ register would be compiled based on the party register in each ward in the eight local government areas, and every participant would be accredited before casting their vote. However, he did not provide the total number of party members, as it varies in each ward.

The chairman of the Primary Election Appeal Committee, DIG Habila Joshua, and other committee members accompanied Jibrin during the press briefing.
