All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Bayelsa State, Chief Timipre Sylva has denied reports that he is not in good terms with President Muhammadu Buhari due to an alleged disagreement.

Sylva denied the reports on Monday, December 14, 2015, via a statement released by his media aide, Doifie Buokoribo.

It reads:

“Sylva distances himself from the falsehood being vended by the authors of the strange report. He has neither granted such interview to any news medium nor made the comments attributed to him either privately or publicly.”

“Sylva holds President Muhammadu Buhari in high esteem, and he is on the same page with his party, APC, in his bid to become the next governor of Bayelsa State, come 14 February 2016.”

“The party has given him the highest support in the governorship contest and has continued to work closely with him in the final push to overcome the few tenuous and fleeting obstacles being erected by enemies of Bayelsa State on the people’s path to freedom.”

“The same elements that authored this outlandish report were the people who only recently alleged that some serving ministers were plotting to rig election for Sylva. Their anxiety and confusion are understandable, considering their imminent fall from power.”

“But they must understand that there is a limit to propaganda, and that election is not won the basis of propaganda, as the recent presidential election in the country has shown. Propaganda cannot fetch them the governorship of Bayelsa State.”

“Buhari overcome a similar propaganda as the one being sown about Sylva. Sylva, too, will soon overcome. We will win, by the grace of God.”

Sylva contested the December 5 governorship elections alongside incumbent governor and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Seriake Dickson but the polls were declared inconclusive by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) after the cancellation of the results in the Southern Ijaw area.
