Former Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), managing director, Timi Alaibe, Saturday, announced that he was running for governor of Bayelsa state. If elected, Alaibe promised to be a champion of poor and oppressed.
The former NDDC boss is one of 15 persons who have obtained the expression of interest and nomination forms to vie for the ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC), ahead of the December 5 Bayelsa State governorship election.
“We as Bayelsa people are tired of accidental leadership. We are tired of visionlessness and you know that I come with a lot of experience, goodwill, integrity and reputation. As one of the major oil producing states in this country, Bayelsa has not been able to see structured development in terms of infrastructural development and even in terms of environmental development as consequence of oil production,” Alaibe said.
The entry of Alaibe into the governorship race is already causing a stir, especially in the ruling PDP led government in the state.
