The Timipre Sylva Campaign Organisation has deplored and condemned the campaign strategy of the Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Governor Seriake Dickson, as dominated by falsehood and deceit.
It described as unfortunate the fact that Dickson had chosen the defaming of the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate, Chief Timipre Sylva, as sole campaign message.
In a statement yesterday in Yenagoa by Mr. DoifieBuokoribo, the Sylva campaign said such a strategy would fail the Bayelsa PDP governorship candidate at the December 5 election just as it failed his principal, former President Goodluck Jonathan, at the last general election.
The Timipre Sylva Campaign Organisation stated, “We are disturbed that a sitting government desiring re-election has taken to a campaign of calumny, deception, and lies and a sole election strategy. In lie after lie, which we have extensively exposed, they have tried to malign the character of Sylva. But it is clear that Dickson and his co-travellers will fail.
“What comes out clearly in the current well-funded media campaign against Sylva is that it carries the official stamp of the Dickson administration. The visibly unimaginative and dull anti- Sylva publications have emanated from Government House, Yenagoa, as the email addresses, forwardings, and other imprimaturs of the Dickson government on them show.
“In their latest rant, they claimed that Sylva was bankrupt. Well, while Dickson is celebrating that Sylva is bankrupt, we are celebrating Dickson’s imminent defeat.
“But what is this obsession with Sylva’s finances. We thought Dickson’s folks should be preoccupied with rolling out his achievements in government. The people want to see what has been ‘restored’ these four odd years”, Sylva himself wrote on his Facebook page Sunday.
“The celebration of Sylva’s imagined insolvency is absurd. Simple Political Science 101 teaches that that once a candidate emerges through a primary, the responsibility of funding his or her campaign rests squarely with the political party. It is unfortunate that Dickson is personalising the coming election in Sylva.
“While Dickson pretends that he is not interested or interfering in affairs of Sylva and his party, APC has become his nightmare. One thing is clear to the whole state. Sylva will win.
“Our people have distinguished between illusion and reality, and they have left Dickson a long time ago to seek the reality of prosperous governance in APC and Sylva. This will be demonstrated on December 5, when the people of Bayelsa State will vote out Dickson.”
