The Bayelsa State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirant, Timi Alaibe of spending N10 billion on former President, Olusegun Obasanjo’s third term bid.

The allegation was made by Bayelsa PDP secretary, Godspower Keku via a statement.

It reads:

“It is a shame that somebody like Alaibe is coming out to say he wants to contest for governor of the state.The question to ask him is: what is he coming to offer? What was his antecedent at NDDC?”

“In his years as the managing director of NDDC, what did he do to better the lot of Bayelsans or the state in spite of all the opportunities available to him? Is it not true that instead of helping his own people, he chose to empower his friends from the North and South West?”

“Now is it not important to ask him if he actually loves Bayelsans; he should account for all the billions of naira budgeted and released for the construction of roads and water projects for Bayelsa State.”

“Where are the roads and water projects in the state and what happened to the money so budgeted and released for this purpose? Who is Alaibe fooling? Surely, Bayelsans don’t trust him. His tenure at NDDC was a complete disaster.”

Alaibe was the Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) under the Obasanjo administration.
