Bola Tinubu, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has named his favourite to contest the December 5, 2015 governorship election in Bayelsa state.
The former Lagos governor endorsed Chief Timipre Sylva as the next governor of Bayelsa state.
Tinubu charged Bayelsans to ensure that Sylva becomes the next governor of the state in order to put the state on the right path.
He said: ”I want him to contest the governorship election because of his proven leadership qualities and our belief that he can bring change to the state”.
”It is time for Bayelsans to unite and support a person who can effectively enhance unity, provide opportunities for all and lead the people in a different direction. If you want change, if you’re unhappy with the direction of Bayelsa State, then you must join the governorship race and change the state for the people.”
The APC national leader, who met Sylva at his Abuja home, not only endorsed him as the party’s consensus candidate for the December 5 governorship poll but lauded him for his contributions to the development of the party in Nigeria, describing him as an agent of change.
