Bayelsa Mandate Forum Seeks Justice After PDP Member’s Death in Violent Clash

Concern Over Recent Violent Outburst

The Bayelsa Mandate Forum, a prominent group in the state, has voiced its concern over the recent violent incident that led to the unfortunate death of a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Nembe community, Bayelsa State.

Inflammatory Remarks and Political Violence

The group’s chairwoman, Esther Ikurite, expressed her concerns and linked the violent outburst to inflammatory remarks and a call for violence made by the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Timipre Sylva, and his running mate, Joshua Maciver.

Maciver had urged APC supporters to chase opposition party supporters into the sea, sparking controversy and fear.

A Call for Peace and Unity

In response to the violent incident, Ikurite emphasized the group’s commitment to peace, unity, and the spirit of brotherhood among its members.

The recent political violence has shaken their confidence and created an atmosphere of fear and insecurity.

Condemnation of Violence and Hate Speech

The Bayelsa Mandate Forum strongly condemns all forms of violence, intimidation, and hate speech in the lead-up to the November 11, 2023, governorship election in the state.

They call for a peaceful and transparent election process that reflects the will of the people.

A Plea for Investigation and Justice

The group implores law enforcement agencies to thoroughly investigate the recent violence in Nembe community and bring the perpetrators to justice.

Ensuring that justice is served is crucial to preventing such incidents from recurring and holding those who resort to violence accountable for their actions.

A Commitment to Development and Progress

As members of the Bayelsa Mandate Forum, they remain committed to contributing positively to the development and progress of their state.

They hope for an election process that prioritizes peace and prosperity, urging all political parties and their candidates to work together for a better future for the people of Bayelsa State.
