A former managing director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Mr Ndutimi Alaibe, and nine other aspirants have joined the Bayelsa State governorship race.
This was disclosed by Friends of Timi Alaibe under the leadership of Senator John Brambaifa, who stormed the national secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja yesterday to obtain the expression of interest and nomination forms on Alaibe’s behalf.
Brambaifa told journalists that Alaibe’s achievements over the years prompted them to pick the governorship forms for him, adding that his group has taken pains to search for a particular candidate who has what it takes to rescue the state and had found the qualities they needed in Alaibe.
“So we have decided to buy the form for him and present him to our people as the most favourable candidate because he will be the best to take the mantle of leadership in Bayelsa.”
Earlier, while presenting the forms to the group, APC national organising secretary, Senator Osita Izunaso, said that Alaibe was the tenth aspirant that have shown interest to occupy the Creek Havens Government House in Yenagoa.
