THE TRENT: Amaechi, Defence Minister Meet In Abuja To Fine Tune Rigging Of Bayelsa Rerun


THE TRENT has obtained a fresh report of how the All Progressives Congress, APC is planning to rig the Bayelsa state re-run election. 

Indications have emerged of a fresh plot by a former governor of Rivers State and Minister of Transport, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi and Minister of Defence, Mohammed Dan Ali, to rig the rerun election in Southern Ijaw LGA the Bayelsa state governorship decider.

The Coordinator of Peoples Democratic Governors Forum, Earl Osaro Onaiwu, raised the alarm in a statement issued on Friday, December 11, 2015 night in Yenagoa.

He alleged that Amaechi and Dan Ali had met in Abuja within the week to perfect ways to rig the poll in favour of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Mr. Timipre Sylva who trails behind incumbent Governor Seriake Dickson in results announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

According to him, the APC remains desperate in its bid to capture the oil-rich state, which he said fits into suggestion by Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State who it was claimed said that all oil-producing states should be taken over by the ruling APC in the interest of national security.

The statement reads: “It is on good authority that the Minister of Transport, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi has held two meetings with Mohammed Dan Ali, Minister of Defence, on how the military can once again be used to intimidate voters and rig the Bayelsa poll for the APC in Southern Ijaw local government in the rerun election for the Bayelsa governorship.
