“It’s not true, I still remain a PDP member,” says Timi Alaibe.
Former Managing Director of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Timi Alaibe, has dispelled the rumours milling around town that he has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Alliance for Democracy (AD) over failure to become PDP’s governorship flagbearer in Bayelsa State.
The prominent politician, in his statement, said he remains a loyal member of PDP despite calls from other parties to adopt him as their governorship candidate.
“We thank our supporters and the people of Bayelsa State for their unprecedented support, evidenced by dead silence in the state on September 4, peaceful conduct and patience since the unacceptable election result was announced last week.
“We apologise for the vacuum created by our silence which has given rise to various speculations planted in the media by those who masterminded the injustice to confuse the people.
“Be assured that this evil act against the wish of the people, carried out by a handful of selfish people who decided to play god by imposing their personal decisions on us, will not go unchallenged.
“At the end, Bayelsa people who are in the majority will have their way.
“We appeal to our supporters to remain calm as it would be made known within the next 48 hours, a necessary action that will ensure that Bayelsa people have the governor they deserve,” Alaibe stated.
