APC, 76 other parties threaten to boycott LG poll in Bayelsa

The All Progressives Congress on Monday said it would not participate in the forthcoming Bayelsa Local Government election slated for August 10.

Buokoribo spoke amidst threats at the weekend by 76 other political parties to boycott the local council election if the Dickson administration did not remove the chairman of BYSIEC, Ball Oyarede. He was appointed chairman of the BYSIEC on June 2 following the sudden resignation of Dr Bertola Perekeme, who cited threat to his life and members of his immediate family as reason for his resignation.

Oyarede and two other newly appointed members of the electoral commission, Charles Emmanuel and Preye Broderick, were screened and confirmed during a marathon session by the former members of the state House of Assembly, which ended on June 3. According to him, the short notice for the election released by BYSIEC was also part of the grand plot by the governor and the PDP to compromise the council polls.“For us, the pertinent question is: how come that for close to eight years, Dickson did not deem it fit to conduct local council election?
