The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bayelsa chapter, has said dredging as a campaign policy by the All Progressives Congress, governorship aspirant, Timi Alaibe’s, would not positively impact residents. Keku Godspower, the party’s secretary, said focus should rather be on “public policies and development issues”.
“By making dredging a core policy thrust of his administration, if elected, obviously exposes his (Alaibe) shallowness; it shows that the man lacks strategic thinking and bereft of clear cut ideas on how to advance the course of governance and development of the state”, the party stated.
The party alleged that “Alaibe’s poor policy understandin” was the reason he didn’t achieve much in his time as Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC)”.
“Clearly, Alaibe lacks content and he is not properly grounded on issues of governance and development. Little wonder he could not deliver on his mandate while in charge of a critical interventionist agency like NNDC with a budget that is five times more than the budget of all the 9 states that make up the Niger Delta".
