'We believe that there is absolutely no way a true Bayelsan would seek to reward our party with wickedness of voting against our party that provided a platform for their son to be the President of this country. This is besides the fact that the governor of Bayelsa has done so much in providing infrastructure for that state,' he affirmed.
