The Peoples Democratic Party Youth Network (PDPYN) has called on Bayelsans “to ignore a wild rumour being peddled by unscrupulous characters about a purported meeting between Governor Seriake Dickson and the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva.”

Secretary General of PDPYN, Mr. James Oputin, urged Bayelsans to ignore the unfounded rumour which he described as a product of mischief.

He said in a statement issued on Saturday in Yenegoa that the politicians behind the rumour were scared of the growing internal cohesion within PDP ahead of the November 16, 2019 gubernatorial election in the state contrary to their expectations.

Oputin also advised members and supporters of PDP “to ignore the false story designed to malign the leadership of the party in Bayelsa.”

He said that “the surreptitious design to put unnecessary doubts in the minds of well meaning supporters of the party in the state should be resisted.”

The PDPYN Scribe said that Governor Dickson and the leadership of PDP in the state did not need any meeting with leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to win the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the state.

He stated also while it was possible for Dickson to host Sylva in his capacity as the minister from Bayelsa in the federal cabinet, “it is sad that some APC members are peddling deliberate misinformation to deceive Bayelsans about a meeting that did not take place.”

Oputin alleged that the same set of people from APC were behind the story that Sylva supported David Lyon because he wanted to give the governorship to PDP.

He advised “the uninformed people behind the fake story to focus their attention on their electoral campaign rather than the failed attempt to plant discord within PDP.”

Oputin noted that PDP and its followers “would not be distracted by disgruntled elements of the APC who are battling to divert attention from the challenge of marketing a gubernatorial misnomer as their candidate in Bayelsa.”

He insisted that Bayelsa is the stronghold of PDP and would continue to remain so. He challenged those behind the rumour to prove the veracity of their story by providing photographic evidence of the said meeting to convince Bayelsans or remain silent.
