The Niger Delta People’s Movement (NDPM) has urged the people of Bayelsa to base their choice of the next governor of the state on the core attributes of competence, integrity, courage, initiative and focus.

In a meeting held on Friday in Yenagoa to discuss the political future of the state, the group identified former governor Timipre Sylva as a round peg in a round hole for the December 5, 2015 governorship election.

“Sylva is suitable for the governorship job. He has devoted his life to humanitarian and philanthropic services. He has provided employment opportunities for the people, especially the youths. He has been one of the most supportive and committed leaders of the APC in the

country,” NDPM said.

Spokesperson of the movement, Mrs. Ibifuro Thompson Tatua, said Sylva would galvanise the people for self-development, energise the economy and also raise the standard of living of the people through adequate inter-village communication such as good road network, electricity,

pipe-borne water, recreational facilities, etc.

She further said that Sylva would stimulate rural industries and show the necessary leadership by matching words with action through evolving workable development approaches, proper co-ordination and funding.

“Sylva has strategies to banish unemployment and insecurity. His government will bring about sustainable development and progress,” the NDPM Spokesperson said.

The meeting was attended by representatives from Brass, Ekeremor, Kolokuma/Opokuma, Nembe, Ogbia, Sagbama, Southern Ijaw and Yenagoa councils.
