Ahead of Bayelsa state governorship election, a polical pressure group Logic is rallying support for Mr. Timi Alaibe to clinch the ticket of Peoples Democratic Party.
Logic is a political pressure group committed to the emergence of credible candidacy to represent the party .
The group was of the opinion that among several aspirants ointerested in PDP ticket, Alaibe remains the best, most experienced and easily sellable to electorate.
A statement signed by the group’s coordinator, Dr. Lanre Toluhi, said it conducted a covert investigation asking voters especially in grassroots and major towns across Bayelsa state and discovered that Alaibe is already an established brand that will ensure PDP retains Bayelsa state in the next election.
The group then urged leaders of the party not to look back at incidents that should have been confined to the dust bin of history, saying if Atiku Abubukar that had left PDP and returned could be given presidential ticket of the party because of his electoral value, Alaibe should also be considered as the consensus candidate of the party for the governorship poll.
It reminded all stakeholders in the party how strategic Bayelsa is for the continued relevance of PDP in the nation’s political system and pleaded that forgiveness of past wrongs is needed to keep the party in power rather than bickering that may eventually end the party’s hold on the oil rich state since 1999.
The statement reads, “Bayelsa is strategic to PDP and Nigeria. It gave Nigeria the finest president we may ever have. Now that we are to consolidate on our hold on to power, we must go for the best.
“Our covert popularity test for all aspirants that have so far shown interest in PDP governorship ticket, returned Frank Timi Alaibe as the most acceptable to the people across all divides.
“We must not take chances with the party in power by allowing past inconsequential events to determine our future. Our Presidential candidate got nod to run on the platform of PDP after he left and return because of the quality is brought to us.
“Now a Timi Alaibe is possessing similar quality that we can’t ignore. We must not allow agents of APC carefully planted in our fold to foist an unpopular candidate on PDP. Alaibe should be the consensus candidate of our party for Bayelsa 2019.
