The Yenagoa Explosions Governor Timipre Sylvia Reacts

Gov. Timipre Sylva
By DOIFIE OLA

Governor Timipre Sylva has just been informed of two explosions that rocked parts of Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, late Friday night. Details of the incident are still sketchy. But the Government of Bayelsa State condemns in the strongest possible terms any attempt to return the state to the dark days of insecurity.

The administration places high premium on peace and security and has invested so much to attain the peace and quiet that currently pervade the state. If there is anything that both friends and foes of the current administration agree on, it is the clear fact that Bayelsa State has since the inception of the Sylva-led government emerged from the darkness of insecurity into the marvelous light of peace and stability. It will be most callous of anyone to try to shatter this peace.

But it is most curious and in fact unfortunate that this new specter of bombing is happening on the eve of a so-called campaign flag-off by persons who want to be entrusted with the welfare and security of Bayelsa people.

The whole world watched in awe and utmost disgust the wanton militarization of Bayelsa State towards the end of last year, against the consent of the governor and chief security officer, at a time of peace, when residents were going about their legitimate businesses. A virtual occupation force was brought in to militarize the state on purpose to force a controversial party primary on Bayelsa people. After the accomplishment of that immoral intent, we have strong reasons to believe that those who had militarized the state without cause are now seeking to give themselves some satanic predicate for yet another round of militarization to accomplish the next phase of their ungodly political enterprise.

It is worrisome that these things are happening in the home state of the Mr. President at a time the nation is faced with a critical security challenges.

We advise the peaceful populace of Yenagoa to remain calm, but strong and vigilant as we work together to overcome these challenges.

DOIFIE OLA
Chief Press Secretary to the Governor

SILVA YOUR DAYS ARE NUMBERED

Silva's days are numbered hence he is trying in vain to discredit our president.

Come February 2012 after the elections and results announced Silva will not be able to talk the way he is doing now.

SILVA TA ORJI ARE TO BE JAILED

Slyvia should stop causing problem in Bayelsa state

The statement by Chief Press Secretary to the Governor clearly shows that Sylva is behind the bomb blast. He should not take us as fouls even a child can digest from your statement, the reason and what you want to achieve by creating problem in the state. The security agency should center their investigation around govt cycle and they will get the Perpetrator

@NAIJA BABE WHAT IS THE

@NAIJA BABE WHAT IS THE DIFERENCE BETWEEN YOU AND SYLVA-YOUR EYES WILL BECOME CLEAR AS SOON THE DRUGS YOU TOOK WITH SYLVA CLEARS FROM YOUR PHOTCOPY HEAD-@D SILVA DO U WNT US TO VOTE FOR BAKARE OR TINUBU AND BUHARI-THESE ARE NOT HUMAN BEINGSSSYLVA SHOULD PACK AND GO--TO KANO

IT MIGHT BE PROTEST BOMBING AGAINST PDP'S HUMILIATION OF SYLVIA

The spate of bombing in Bayelsa might be a protest against PDP by the people, loyalist of Sylvia against the maltreatment of their own.
PDP should stop hoodwinking people for no just course.

bayelsa bombing was orchestrated by gej himself

forget timipre's issues. what he is saying is that the blasts were orchestrated. I believe him. after 18 hrs of gej's silence on kano, he planted the double blasts in yenagoa to deflect from his insensitivity to the poor people of kano's plight. funny how there was no damage and no casualties. jonathan is being handled by some unscrupulous people with very little intelligence. they are roping him in criminal acts. immunity or not nigerians will make him pay.

sylva its time to pack and go

Every niger deltan knows the bombs were exploded by sylva. So he should be told to shut up. Bayelsans dont want him again-even if falana is able to steal him back into government house-as they did with tinubu-during his recent trial- we would rather remain without a governor than silva-he sold us cheap to foreigners--as matter of fact he is behind the campaign to reduce jonathan to nothing in nigeria-

Syla should wisen up...

I expected sylva to be a loyal party man and henceforth refrain from open confrontation with Mr. president. The card is clear on the table. He does not need a crystal ball to know that Bayelsa people, PDP and Mr.president are sick and tired of him.One would have thought that in the last couple of months Sylva would have sat down in Yenagoa to supervise and deliver his so much touted democracy dividend. Rather he has been in Abuja with all his retinue of commissioners bribing one judge after another. My advice is for him to use the remaining months to endear himself to the people in order to gain a soft landing spot in the end. Toe the path of wisdom.

pointing fingers

Sylva should be careful about his allegation. He could be the mastermind behind the bomb blast to further discredit Jonathan government. Why would the PDP create crisis and confusion for themselves by bombing Bayelsa before the opening of their campaign.

The Government should be held responsible

The Government should be held responsible for any break down of security in that state. I guess the choice of PDP being among the candidates for the election has caused this ugly development.... Read the statement made by the GOVERNMENT.

WHEN U LAY WITH DOGS, EXPECT TO WAKE UP WITH FLEAS.

THIS USELESS MAN TIMIPRE SYLVA WHO IS WELL KNOWN AMONG SECURITY CIRCLES AS A HARDENED OCCULTISTS WITH TIES TO THE NIGER DELTA MILITANTS IS NOW GOING AROUND CONDEMMING TERRORISM. IT IS BECAUSE THE SOCIETY HAS FAILED IN IT'S VALUES SYSTEM TO ALLOW MEN WHO ARE MEANT TO BE IN JAIL, TO BE THE ONES RULING THE NATION. THATS WHY NIGERIA MAY NEVER KNOW SECURITY OR SURVIVE. MEN LIKE THESE HAVE BEEN SHAPED DEEPLY IN ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOURS FROM THEIR YEARS IN SCHOOL AS SECRET CULT MEMBERS & TRU BULLYING, THUGGING MADE IT TO THE POSITION OF POWER. NIGERIA NEEDS SOME THOROUGH CLEANSING BY SOME REALLY MAD REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIER TO DETOX THE SOCIETY OF THESE POISIONS & GENETIC ERROR OF HUMAN BEINGS.

He who fetches an ant

He who fetches an ant infected firewood;invariably invites the lizard to his house.What is Silva trying to tell us. Is it bcos he's run out of favor? How did he get to power at the first place.
