A socio-political group under the aegis of BOSSNEKY for David Lyon has been inaugurated in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa state capital to ensure that the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) emerges victorious in the forthcoming governorship election.
Convener and Grand Patron of the group, Mr. Salvation Okotie, during the inauguration ceremony, said BOSSNEKY was an acronym formed with the first letter of each of the eight local government councils that made up Bayelsa state.
The main objective of the group, he said, was to mobilize Bayelsans in all the 105 Wards in the state for the APC governorship flagbearer because of their belief in the person of David Lyon to save Bayelsa from the verge of social and economic collapse.
Okotie urged the state, local government and ward coordinators of BOSSNEKY to be selfless in the discharge of their duties and work assiduously towards the victory of David Lyon, stating that their actions or inactions would determine what becomes of Bayelsa and Bayelsans in the next four years.
“If you know where we are coming from, which I am sure you know, then you must know where we are going. Therefore, l urge you to take your destiny in your hands.
“We must all work to deliver David Lyon. He is the last hope for Bayelsa at the moment and if we slaughter this opportunity on the altar of little pecuniary gains, we shall all have ourselves to be blamed for the next four years.
“Go and deliver your local governments, wards and units for a man who has a human heart, who is ready to wipe away our twenty-three years old tears of hardship and underdevelopment,” he added.
In a related development, the All Progressives Congress (APC) Aspirants forum (APCAF) in Bayelsa state has called on her members to support the candidacy of Lyon to ensure victory for the party come November 16.
The state coordinator of the forum, Mr. Toriomo Excel said in a statement that the victory of Lyon was a hallmark of his acceptance by majority stakeholders of the APC family in the state.
Excel who contested the party’s primary election for Brass constituency 1 and lost to another contestant, said the forum comprised all APC aspirants who contested for the various tickets during the 2019 general elections and the just concluded governorship primary election won by Lyon.
While commending the other aspirants for their display of maturity throughout the process and their show of sportsmanship, the coordinator pleaded with the few aggrieved persons to join hands with the flagbearer, adding that a win for the APC was a win for all.
Excel called on members of the APC and Bayelsans to continue to stand by the former governor and Minister of Petroleum, Chief Timipre Sylva to liberate the state from suffering in the hands of the ruling PDP.
