The governorship primaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa could not hold last Tuesday due to violence and lack of proper identification of delegates and a questionable delegate list.
The Deputy Organising Secretary of the Party, Chief Timi Frank, said that planned governorship primaries did not hold and that he his surprised to hear that Timi Alibe has emerged as the winner.
He said that elections did not hold, the Chairman of the organising committee was not around, delegate list was questionable and voting did not take place, claiming that it was one of the members of the committee that declared Timi Alaibe winner and there were no fact to substanciate his victory.
It was gathered that the Chairman of the Bayelsa governorship elections primaries, Governor Adams Oshiomhole was not present at the Samson Siasia stadium where the election was supposed to take place.
Governor Oshiomhole was seen when he was trying to mediate with some aspirants to address their complaints and those of the some delegates.
Chief Timi Alaibe who was one of the aspirants also rejected the entire process, insisting that thugs stormed the venue with questionable and cloned means of identification.
The All Progressives Congress had recently prided themselves as being the only party that had conducted an incontrovertible primary elections. However, the Bayelsa experience has neutralized all their claims.
About 19 aspirants took part in the APC governorship primaries in Bayelsa.
