SOKOTO STATE Governor, Aminu Tambuwal has been accused of being part of plot to rig Timipre Sylva into power as Governor of Bayelsa State.
A group of leaders from Ijaw, under the name Ijaw Leaders Forum – ILF, Wednesday criticized Governor Tambuwal over comment he allegedly made during the inauguration of the campaign council of the All Progressives Congress – APC, in Bayelsa.
Publicity Secretary of the body, Prof. Friday Brisbie-Williams signed a statement, warning that the people of the state would resist attempt to rig the governorship election.
Part of the statement read: “We Ijaw know who are our enemies and we will ensure that our people are effectively mobilised to stop our enemies and their party from having a foothold in Bayelsa,”
Tambuwal, a former Speaker of the House of Representatives was described as an enemy of the Ijaw nation, for allegedly working against former President Goodluck Jonathan.
Sylva, a one-time governor of the state will be representing the APC at the December 5 election.
