According to a report by The Punch Newspapers, the aggrieved lawmaker, who is one of the disqualified governorship contenders for the PDP’s ticket in the state, made this comment on Saturday, September 26, 2015.

Paulker said, “For our democracy to thrive in this country, there must be internal democracy. Without internal democracy, it is difficult for a party to reflect democracy on the playground. It is better to quarrel in the process of internal democracy than to shut out internal democracy out of our democratic experience."

Continuing, Paulker said, 'Regarding our disqualification, up till now, the appeal panel has yet to come out with the result of the screening.

'Power comes from God. Irrespective of parties, Bayelsa belongs to all of us. If a government is formed tomorrow, all of us will benefit from it.  Any government in power owes all of us a duty of service.

'Like I told them at the screening panel, when they criticised me that members of the All Progressives Congress attended my ceremonies, I said the party required more Paulkers now than ever because we require ambassadors to go out of this party to canvass for votes in order for us to win,' he concluded.

The primary was by the incumbent governor, Seriake Dickson, who was declared winner by the party on Thursday, September 24, 2015.
