Former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Timi Alaibe has withdrawn from the Bayelsa State governorship race.

Alaibe was due to contest for the slot of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the party’s rescheduled primaries.

The governorship aspirant’s decision was conveyed via a statement released on Wednesday, September 30, 2015.

It reads:

“I am not oblivious of the fundamental fact that we all need a virile, united, cohesive and collaborative APC to bring about our desires to fruition. Not only do we need this, APC deserves every sacrifice, including personal interests, to arrive at the envisaged destination come February, 2016.”

“Whereas I am confident that I have the required support of my admirers and supporters as well as the needed backing of Bayelsans to govern them, the hurdles set on the way of this noble project are seemingly tempestuous and capable of overheating the APC in Bayelsa.”

The initial APC primaries had been won by former Bayelsa Governor, Timipre Sylva but the party accused him of hijacking the polls through the use of hired thugs.
