The Timipre Sylva Campaign Organisation for the Bayelsa State 2015 governorship election has dismissed reports in the media that two more governors will be joining Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole to organise a fresh All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary in Yenagoa on Tuesday.

In a statement signed by Sylva’s spokesman, Doifie Buokoribo, he said the reports are misleading because only the national working committee of the APC can annul any primary election.

The statement said the two governors quoted as joining Oshiomhole to conduct a fresh primary are not even in the country: “While Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun is presently in New York for the United Nations General Assembly, Governor Aminu Tambuwal is attending hajj in Saudi Arabia.”

The Sylva campaign team stated that the APC candidate for the December 5, 2015 governorship election in Bayelsa remains Sylva who emerged winner during a free and fair process.
