The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) says only a fresh governorship election conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), would be the solution to resolving the electoral problem in Bayelsa state.

The party’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, said the commendation of the Supreme Court and INEC by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over the political situation in the state has exposed the opposition party as a fraudulent and two-faced party.

He specifically asked the PDP’s National Chairman, Uche Secondus, whether democracy is no longer under threat as he had claimed.

According to the deputy APC spokesman, APC has formally demanded a fresh election in Bayelsa state, saying that the party’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole while affirming the supremacy of the Apex Court, forwarded a letter to the INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu requesting for a fresh governorship election in Bayelsa state.

He demanded that the rule of law must be strictly adhered to in the case of the Bayelsa governorship.
