Bayelsa PDP Guber Primaries Extortion Scheme: "Why We Didn't Clear Gov. Sylva, Alaibe, Others"- PDP Panel

By SaharaReporters, New York

The Screening Appeal Panel of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), headed by the former Deputy Governor of Ekiti State, Abiodun Olujimi, has said it refused to clear the incumbent Governor of Bayelsa State because of weighty security allegations against him.

On Timi Alaibe, the panel said it lacked “the mandate to grant a waiver” and that only the PDP National Working Committee is constitutionally empowered to grant such request.

The panel’s first report, which was published by Saharareporters, said of the situation concerning the governor, “His Excellency Sylva as a sitting governor presented all relevant documentary evidence in respect of his application as gubernatorial aspirant. He equally defended himself on allegations of anti-party activities.”

But the report, which was signed by Olujimi and the panel’s secretary, Hon. Abba Anas Adamu, then said: “…On the issues of security as raised in the petition by Oracles Law Firm and by the screening panel, the appeal panel lacks adequate information and the technical know how to reach a defendable decision.”

It said that security issues were beyond the scope of its assignment, and recommended, “The National Working Committee and the elders of the party looks into the matter and decide appropriately.”

On Doukpola Amaebi, the panel affirmed that the aspirant had not properly disengaged from his previous place of work as no original relevant documents were sighted.  It therefore recommended withdrawal of the aspirant’s provisional clearance.

Turning to Orufa Boloubo, the panel said that the tax receipt presented by him affirmed that payments were made when they were due.
 
Gov. Sylva continues to take on the PDP, claiming that the party didn't have the power to disqualify him from the state party primaries after an initial panel cleared him to participate.

On its part, the NWC has yet to release the second batch list containing names of candidates cleared to run for the Bayelsa state primaries.  That list initially excluded Mr. Sylva.

Yesterday, it scandalously emerged that officials and elders of the PDP were engaged in the extortion of N500 million from the governor in order to clear him to run. SaharaReporters sources said the party elders had originally played along with President Goodluck Jonathan's determination to exclude Sylva from the governorship race. 

But they then saw an opportunity in the stalemate for a huge payday through extorting huge sums of money from Sylva by offering him assurances that his name would emerge in the party's second list, which was expected yesterday.

As blind desperation met insatiable greed, the bank vaults of President Jonathan’s home state were thrown open to help put Sylva’s name back on the PDP primaries ballot.

@Onitire Okafor, although I am more comfortable with NCP which late Gani left 4 us, PDP is still not the type of party that imposes son inlaw, wives and daughtewr inlaws on the electorates. If Sylva likes let him resign from PDP and team up with CPC and ACN which like Sylva recently said has been begging him to decamp to. But he will never win. Niger Deltans, most especially bayelsans will vote for a a truck pusher in Aswani market at Oshodi than have Sylva mortgage the futrue of the state to foreigners again. Amaechi will be next on the list. Sylva is a disgrace if not a curse to the niger delta ppl.

what ye sow, ye shall reap.

Both Jonathan and Sylva are birds of thesame feathers. Corrupt, election riggers e.t.c. Therefore Jona lacks the moral justification to attempt to throw Sylva out of office. Meanwhile the people of Delta state are raining courses on Jona for betraying them. They helped rig him and in return, he imposed Uduaghan on them to prolong their under development. In the same vain, the God of equity and justice will ensure that the likes of Gov. Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta state will rule Bayelsa state no matter what Jona does. I rest mwy case.

this man is ignorant

PDP IS THE ONLY PROBLEM Nigerians ARE NURSING. YOU DID NOT VOTE PDP BUT JONATHAN. CAN HE DO ANYTHING APART FROM WHAT THE DEBTORS TELLS HIM

Goodluck and Sylva

First, a disclaimer. I am not a PDP member neither do I have sympathy of any of their members,but I just fill concerned to bring something to the attention of President Jonathan Goodluck,since he has chosen to dabble into the process of who should and should not participate in PDP primary in Bayelsa State.
As things stand now, Goodluck has no choice than to ensure that Sylva does not participate and win the PDP primary, because anything other than that will spell political doom for Goodluck in future.
Goodluck should remember that he will quit office in 2015 while Sylva if he wins will quit in 2015.
What this means is that Sylva will outlast Goodluck in office.
What will happen in Bayelsa then is better left to the imagination.But if we will learn from the OGD/OBJ debacle in Ogun State, the answer is obvious.
The wise one has spoken, let Jonathan, if he has ears, listen.

If the Governor feels He's

If the Governor feels He's done well for another term, then let Him forget about the PDP and pitch His tent somewhere else. Afterall Owelle Rochas defeated the 'mighty' O-hack-im, in Imo state, and He(Rochas)was from APGA.

I agree with you that the

I agree with you that the report is utter rubbish. I think its high time SR began to redefine itself or else it would completely lose whatever relevance it still has left

CONFIRM PHONE CALL EVIDENCE

IT IS VERY CLEAR WITH THE EVIDENCE JUST OBTAINED THAT THE PRESIDENT IS DOING EVERYTHING TO STOP GOV SILVER. WE PROMISE TO RELEASE CALL LOG EVIDENCE AND ALSO DOCUMENTS INCLUDING RECORDED PHONE CALL AT THE MEETINGS HELD AT THE OFFICIAL RESIDENCE OF THE CSO TO JONATHAN WHO HAPPENS TO COME FROM THE SAME AREA WITH THE PRESIDENT.

Onitere okafor. You dnt know

Onitere okafor. You dnt know what u are talkin about. PDP is the the most organise party in nigeria. PDP is not the problem of nigeria but nigerians are the problem of this country. Because our leaders all emanate from the society. CPC ACN APGA has thier own woes. Tinubu is dictating the political pace in south west,let consider the recent flaw L.G.A election in lagos as a case study. Tinubu controls virtually all the political machinery in south west,with Buhari handpicking his candidate for a political position in the north. PDP still remain the most credible and national political party that represent the interest of all region in the the country and can not be said to be control by one person or representing the interest of a particular region unlike other party. Lai mohamad should stop grandstanding as recently conducted L.G.A election in lagos has prove that they can not rule this country well. We should stop deceiving our selves.

Nigerians Saving Nigerians:

bayelsa paddy paddy primaries

Naija I hail thee! Sylva, Alaibe, Jonathan, Obj, anenih, olujimi et all, all na thief! All join. I pity us d masses.

PDP: A Thieving mafia of hoodlums, scammers and crooks

Why does this tragi-comedy in Bayelsa called PDP primaries not surprise anyone? These sadistic rogues busy extorting stolen government money are only living up to the sordid reputation which the owners of that evil behemoth - the PDP - in the likes of Jonathan, Obasanjo, Anenih, the state governors, David Mark and co. These vultures only know the language of scamming, looting, extortion, election rigging and corruption. The PDP reign of evil and wanton stealing of Nigeria's collective resources and assets since 1999 has completely ruined Nigeria. The scammer and impostor known as Jona wants to impose another illegitimate charlatan in Bayelsa. Really sad!

OLUJIMI IS A PROSTITUTE IN

OLUJIMI IS A PROSTITUTE IN HIGH PLACES. ....HER HUSBAND HAS GIVEN UP ON HER .SHE IS GREED AND WILL DO ANYTHING FOR POWER AND MONEY...NO WONDER SHE WAS CHOSEN FOR THIS ASSIGNMENT
