The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiohmole, on Monday, said President Muhammadu Buhari has a “brand new baby boy”.
He said this in reference to the emergence of APC governorship candidate, David Lyon, as Bayelsa Governor-Elect.
Oshiomhole spoke to newsmen after he and other APC leaders presented Lyon to President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
“As the President and our father, he has a brand new baby boy who will be sworn- in on Valentine Day February 14, 2020, as governor of Bayelsa State”, NAN quoted him as saying.
“We thanked the president for his fatherly role and he insisted that we must ensure that while we are determined to win the election that we must play by the rules and ensure that the process is transparent.
“Above all the president has always been concerned about peaceful election and we were proud to inform him that besides very isolated cases of ballot box snatching, the election in Bayelsa can be described as the most peaceful.
“I believe since 1999, you as very seasoned journalists who have covered elections in Bayelsa in the past, you will agree that this is the only time we can say the election is truly transparent and peaceful.
“Again, our candidate attracted support across the political divide when you see territories and communities where his victory was being celebrated you will agree that not only did he had the support of the APC family, he had support beyond the APC family,” Oshiomhole added.
