“In Bayelsa State, two months to the election, you already know who is winning the election. Let us not deceive ourselves, this one is already clear that the APC has already won the election.

“Everybody knows that we are going to win Brass.LGA, we will win Nembe LGA, we will win Ogbia LGA, Southern Ijaw LGA is a no-go area, we will win Ekeremor, Yenagoa is everybody’s place. The only two LGAs likely to go to them are contestable. We enjoin the people of Sagbama to come out en masse to cast their votes as we are very sure that the APC will sweep the poll on November 11, 2023.”
