A Former managing director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Timi Alaibe has debunked news making the rounds in the state that he has left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and joined another political party.
Alaibe in a statement signed by the Administrative Secretary of the Timi Alaibe Campaign Organisation, Seiyefa Brisibie said he is still in the PDP despite barrage of offers he has received from many political parties to join their fold. The statement said Alaibe is almost done with consultations on the next step after the PDP’s governorship primary election which he faulted the conduct.
The statement reads in part, “Be assured this evil act against the wish of the people of Bayelsa State, carried out by a handful of selfish people who decided to play god by arrogating to themselves the unrighteous act of imposing their personal decisions on us, will not go unchallenged.
“At the end, Bayelsa people, who are in the majority, will have their way. As it is tradition in matters of this kind, we will carry out due consultation across board with our supporters; particularly the stakeholders, including our vibrant youths and women, before taking any step or embarking on any decision in search of redress or alternatives.
“We are almost at the end of the necessary consultations. Conscious of the deadlines provided in both the Electoral Acts and the PDP constitution regarding any action deemed necessary on matters of this nature, we have decided that whatever that will be done must be done fast. We are appealing to our supporters to remain calm as it will be made known within the next 48 hours, a necessary action that will ensure Bayelsa people have the governor they deserve, in the person of Alaibe.”
