By Arodiegwu Eziukwu

Dr.Donny Sigah an aspirant for Southern Ijaw State Assembly constituency 3 election under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Balyesa on Monday said he has the support base to win the polls if given the ticket to run.

Sigah who hails from Ekowe community in the Bomo Central bloc that make up the Constituency submitted his nomination forms at the APC secretariats in Yenagoa on Friday.

Addressing his supporters drawn from the three political blocs of Bomo West in Yenagoa,he said the constituency suffered poor representation due to wrong choices made by political godfathers to score cheap popularity.

He promised adequate and effective representation when elected, adding that he will within two months in office inaugurate his Constituency office to ease communication with constituents.

Sigah said he will operate an open door policy and drive people-oriented policies and the manifesto of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“I have served my community,Ekowe, as youth president.And this was during the turbulent agitation for resource control by youths in the Niger Delta region.

“And you know that it can only take a youth with a positively acceptable character to build bridges with our youths.

“Shortly after that period,my people requested that I should represent the ward as Councillor in the Southern Ijaw Local Government Council, and of course, I was popularly elected.

“I thereafter became House Committee Chairman on Business and Communication,an office I effectively managed.

“I am well groomed to work with all shades of people. I am a Development economist who believes that for society to grow acceptably, leaders must develop the people.

“You cannot distance yourself from the people and pretend to be their representative” Sigah said.

He expressed appreciation to leader of the party in Bayelsa and Minister of State for Petroleum, Chief Timipre Sylva, State Chairman of the party, Dr.mDennis Otiotio for keeping the party together.

He also applauded erstwhile Governor-Elect of the state, Chief David Lyon for massively mobilising membership for the All Progressives Congress in the state.

Also speaking,Dr.Solomon David who recently withdrew from the race for Sigah described the aspirant as a seasoned politician who is connected to all the three political blocs in the Constituency.

“I have always reasoned that no great man can be taller than his master. We were six to run the primaries, but the best of all that has the capacity to win election for the APC is Donny Sigah.

“I am throwing my weight behind him, and I am calling on all stakeholders of the party, particularly those in Southern Ijaw constituency 3 that we shouldn’t just be preparing to contest the election, but ensure that we win in that election.

“We can only win when we sponsor a candidate that has the capacity to win the election”, David said.
