Former Bayelsa State Governor, Timipre Sylva, is set to hit back at the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the cancellation of the disrupted September 22 primary election.
The decision of the APC to reschedule the primary was disclosed by its Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, on Wednesday.
Odigie-Oyegun hinged the decision on the security challenges, adding that leadership of the party would meet to choose a new date for the exercise.
The inconclusive primary held at the Samson Siasia Stadium, Yenagoa, on Tuesday was frustrated by fracas involving supporters of most of the 19 aspirants.
The situation led to the walk-out of 14 aspirants, including Timi Alaibe, from the venue after Chairman of the primaries committee, Governor Adams Oshiomhole, was whisked out by soldiers to avoid being attacked.
Results of the purported primary indicated that Sylva polled 726 votes to defeat his closest rival, Alaibe, who got four votes.
A total of 1,502 delegates were expected to participate in the primary.
