opposition parties in

Bayelsa campaign

NAN-H-1

Ogbulafor

Yenagoa, May 11,

2008 (NAN) Chief

Vincent Ogbulafor,

the National Chairman

of the PDP, has

commended the

efforts of the

opposition parties in

Bayelsa state, ahead

of the May 24 state re-

run governorship

election.

Ogbulafor, who stated

that their challenge

had helped to

strengthen the PDP,

spoke on Saturday at

the flag off of the

party's campaign in

Yenagoa.

He said that the

determination of other

parties in the state to

wrestle power from

the ruling PDP had

provided the much

needed tonic for it to

excel at the poll.

"I am standing here to

commend the efforts

of the Action

Congress and other

parties to challenge

the PDP for the

governorship position

in Bayelsa state", he

said.

Ogbulafor lauded the

people for their

support for PDP,

saying that Bayelsa is

a solid land that is

"flowing with milk and

honey."

"We at the National

secretariat shut down

our offices to come

and throw our support

for our candidate in

demonstration of our

love for the people of

Bayelsa state,''

he stated.

The chairman called

on all Bayelsans to

come out in large

numbers and vote

Chief Sylva into office.

Also, Senate

President David Mark

assured Bayelsans

that the PDP would

win in a peaceful, free

and fair election.

He said the PDP

government would

continue to protect the

rights of the citizens

and ensure justice at

all levels of

government.

Mark said he was

overwhelmed with the

massive turn out of

Bayelsans, noting that

the development

underscored the

people's belief in the

party.

Ogbulafor-- 3

The ANPP in the state

added its support to

the PDP at the rally,

when its governorship

candidate in last

year's election, Chief

Bethel Amabebe, said

that PDP had the

support of the ANPP in

the coming election.

Amabebe, the State

Commissioner for

Environment in

Sylva's

cabinet, described the

former governor as a

man of wisdom

who has vision to

transform the state.

"The ANPP in Bayelsa

State, which I

represent, will partner

with the PDP to bring

back Chief Timipre

Sylva as governor",

he assured.

The News Agency of

Nigeria (NAN) reports

that the campaign rally

was well attended.
