"The president is with you in this journey, the national leadership of the party is with you, and all of us stand by you in this fight to deliver APC and Timipreye Sylva. We will triumph in Bayelsa on the 11th of November, by the grace of God," he assured them.

The APC deputy national chairman, South, Chief Emma Eneukwu, who represented the national chairman, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, re-emphasized the party's unwavering commitment to securing victory in Bayelsa.

He made it clear, saying, "We will not rest until victory is achieved. Bayelsa is a low-hanging fruit ripe for the taking, and we will pluck it with ease. We will stand with you throughout this struggle. Continue with the campaigns and don't let the antics of the PDP discourage you or hinder your resolve."

Also speaking, vice national chairman South-South, Chief Victor Giadom, applauded Governor Inuwa Yahaya's inspirational leadership, saying he is a man with remarkable track record and astute political acumen.

He described the Gombe governor as a performer and a seasoned leader in politics and governance who has the wherewithal to deliver on the task in Bayelsa State.

Giadon said, "We deeply appreciate you, Your Excellency. You have shown character and examplary leadership in this assignment. We commend your courage, and we thank you for leading the way.
