INEC Personnel Loyal to Bayelsa PDP – Timipre Sylva

Chief Timipre Sylva

By Yemi Adebowale

The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Bayelsa State, Timipre Sylva, has accused the nation’s electoral body, Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, of being partisan.

A statement by his campaign outfit, Friday, the Sylva-Igiri Campaign Organisation, said a senior officer of the Independent National Electoral Commission was working for the Peoples Democratic, PDP, in the state.

Sylva said, “We have been inundated with calls and reports that a particular senior member of the commission in the state headquarters is a PDP agent. This is because of the role the ranking official played in the last Presidential, National Assembly and House of Assembly elections, working closely with appointees of Governor Seriake Dickson.
“While our campaign organisation is irrevocably committed to ensuring peaceful and credible poll, the electoral body must also purge some of its staff and personnel who are believed to be showing sympathy to the ruling party in the state.”

The former Bayelsa State Governor called on the nations electoral body to stick to the laid down rules in the accreditation of election monitors and observers for the governorship election.
