APC blasts Diri over N2.9b car loan

- Bayelsa governor has been criticised for his plan to take N2.9b car loan

- According to the APC, the plan is scandalous, unsympathetic and ungodly

- Also, the APC queried the state house of assembly for approving the loan request

All Progressive Congress (APC) in Bayelsa state has criticised the decision of Governor Douye Diri to take a bank loan of N2.9 billion for buying of operational vehicles.

The party described the decision by the governor, his deputy, and other top government functionaries to purchase the cars as “scandalous, unsympathetic and ungodly.”

APC disclosed this in a statement by Doifie Ola, the state publicity secretary.

According to the party, Diri was insensitive to the plights of the state civil servants because it came at a time civil servants and pensioners in the state have not been paid.

It added that the plan was a continuation of the frivolities of the PDP government of Governor Dickson.

Going further, APC berated the state House of Assembly for approving the loan request.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the All Progressives Congress (APC) reacted to the verbal attacks on the minister of state for petroleum, Timipre Sylva and its suspended national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The PDP had in a statement credited to its state secretary, Godspower Keku, claimed that Sylva and Oshiomhole facilitated their electoral victory at the court by foisting Senator Degi Erimienyo as the running mate to David Lyon.

Legit.ng gathered that Keku in the statement condemned Sylva for his criticism of the Supreme Court judgement, which voided the governorship victory of the APC.

PDP also accused Sylva of “foisting extreme violence on Bayelsans and Bayelsa since 2015”, claiming that Sylva was responsible for the pockets of violence in Yenagoa and Abuja following the sacking of the former governor-elect of the state, David Lyon.

Reacting to the PDP's statement, the APC in a statement signed by its state publicity secretary, Doifie Buokoribo, described the PDP’s position as irresponsible, petty and provocative.

He said it was a clear fact that the PDP was occupying the Bayelsa government House illegitimately as the party did not win the governorship election held on November 16, 2019.
