Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, the National Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC), has told Chief Timipre Silva, one of the contestants in Sept. 22 botched primary in Bayelsa to go to court. 

“Mr Sylva can go to court because that is what the court is meant for,” the chairman said on Monday in Abuja. 

The chairman made the statement while responding to newsmen who asked for his comments on Silva’s claim that he won the botched primary.

 He said that the party had decided to conduct another primary on Sept. 29.

 He added that the party’s National Working Committee deemed it fit to provide a level playing ground for all candidates who aspire to public offices in the party. 

Odigie-Oyegun declared that the process that led to the Sept. 22 primary in Yenogoa did not meet the standard which the party had set for itself. 

He said: “we had serious security challenges and the process did not meet the standard which this party has set for itself.

 “We have no alternative but to stop the process by ensuring that the chairman of the panel was moved out of the venue with the help of security agencies. 

“We decided thereafter that there should be fresh primary. 

“We have written to INEC on our decision to conduct fresh primary for the Bayelsa governorship election on Tuesday. 

“We are getting in touch with the Inspector-General of Police and all other security agencies to assist us in ensuring effective security.” (NAN)
