Bayelsa Election: PDP Reacts to APC's Disqualification
Douye Diri- Governorship candidate of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in Bayelsa state- says Thursday’s court ruling that barred the APC from participating in the Governorship Elections on Saturday shows that the party lacks internal democracy.
Senator Diri said this while addressing journalists in Yenagoa following the Federal High Court ruling.
He said the ruling validated his earlier claims that the APC cannot rule Bayelsa.
While reacting to Wednesday’s violence at a PDP rally in Nembe, Senator Diri urged the Federal Government to declare a state of emergency in the area.
He said the people of the area are still being intimidated by suspected APC loyalist, calling on the Inspector General of Police to arrest those responsible for the Nembe attack.
