Restoration Campaign Organisation, a Peoples Democratic Party group has claimed that the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate, Timipre Sylva, did not feel bad after losing at the polls because he went clubbing and drinking.
In a statement issued by the Director of Publicity of the PDP campaign organisation, Jonathan Obuebite, he said in spite of what APC supporters may say, the APC candidate did not “seemingly feel really bad” about the outcome of the election, claiming that Sylva went clubbing after the results were declared.
This, he said, did not suggest he was “terribly affected”, adding that, his action suggested instead that he was not expecting to win, after all.
“Sylva after losing the election went clubbing and drinking Hennessy with friends in all the three clubs he attended yesterday (Sunday). How can a man who just lost election attend a club if he was expecting to win?
“He was buying drinks for everybody. So many Bayelsans found his behaviour strange, particularly after participating in an election in which no less than fourteen deaths were recorded and several others nursing various life threatening injuries”, Obuebite stated.
