The All Progressives Congress in Bayelsa State has demanded the withdrawal of nomination of Prof. Nelson Brambiafa into the Board of the Niger Delta Development Commission in the interest of party cohesion.

The party made the demand in a letter to President Muhammadu Buhari, signed by Chief Israel Sunny-Goli, the lawmaker representing Brass Constituency I in the Bayelsa State House of Assembly.

The APC chief accused the former Governor of Rivers State and Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, of meddling in the affairs of Bayelsa by foisting the appointment of Brambiafa on the people.

Sunny-Goli, who also doubles as the House Committee Chairman on the NDDC, pointed out that the appointments so far made from Bayelsa by Buhari were eroding cohesion and causing party disunity, saying they were all concentrated in one senatorial district of the state.

According to the lawmaker, the party was shocked that its unnamed nominee, who had been unanimously chosen  by all stakeholders, could not make the final list because of Amaechi’s alleged interference.

He alleged that Amaechi had claimed that Buhari directed him to nominate the state representatives from the Niger Delta states based on his former position as the Director-General of the Buhari Campaign Organisation.

Sunny-Goli stated that if the nomination was not reversed, it meant that other senatorial districts that campaigned against the Goodluck Jonathan government for the enthronement of the ‘change government’ had been excluded, with grave implications for party cohesion.

While condemning the attempts to sideline the APC leaders in the state by foisting people on them, the lawmaker said that Amaechi should restrict himself to Rivers and leave other South-South states alone.

He declared that the APC members still believed in the ideology of the Buhari government and would want him to reverse the nomination to assuage the ill feelings some members have toward the Federal Government.
