The groups said party primaries must and should be conducted with the highest standards of transparency and sincerity for the entire process to be deemed credible and in the best interest of our nation democracy.

"At this juncture, we must state in vivid terms that we are deeply displeased  with the developments pertaining the Bayelsa State APC governorship primaries.

"The disqualification of one of the leading aspirants in the person of Dr. Frankland Oyeins is totally anti democratic and anti progressive step.

"Dr. Oyin comes in as one of the very credible aspirants with towering credentials and it is only fair that the APC should have accorded him the level playing ground to exercise his fundamental rights as a worthy party man.

"We are aware that there are strong forces who feel threatened by candidature of Dr. Frankland Oyeins,we urge the party not to be drawn into the needless fears of those who do not mean well for our democracy.

"We therefore use this medium to appeal to the All Progressives Congress to immediately clear Dr. Frankland Oyin to contest the APC Party primaries in Bayelsa State"they said
