This accusation was made by Sylva/Igiri campaign organization in a statement by its director of Media and Publicity; Nathan Egba, on Thursday, November 26, saying that available information showed that the PDP have been exchanging voters cards with money.

Egba noted that the most worrisome part of the exchange of PVCs was that innocent rural dwellers’ were offered a paltry one thousand naira for the said exchange.

He said:  “In many cases, the PDP government’s agents have been in the habit of collecting PVC numbers of innocent women who are lured to attend the Governor’s Wife’s programmes with financial inducements.

“The pertinent question is, what they want to do with other people’s PVCs or their PVC numbers."

The campaign spokesman frowned at the current situation in the state where PDP was gathering PVCs who he said were in the hands of PDP ward coordinators across the state.

Egba pointed out further that most of the cards that were collected belong to ghost voters that were staged managed by the PDP ward leaders in the state.

We are raising all these issues in order to alert the security agencies and INEC to the various ways and means the PDP intends to use in rigging the forthcoming governorship elections in Bayelsa State,” the spokesman said.

Meanwhile, former militant chief, Ekpemupolo, commonly called ‘General’ Tompolo, has been warned by a former Niger Delta militant leader in Bayelsa state, Africanus Ukparasia, ‘General Africa’ to stay clear of Bayelsa politics.
