A former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Timi Alaibe, has declared for the governorship seat of Bayelsa State on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party.
Alaibe made the declaration on Thursday in Abuja.
He said he will run a Blue Ocean Economy and get private sector capital for sustainable development in the state.
He has also obtained the relevant form from the National Secretariat for the governorship race.
Alaibe, who unveiled his ambition in Abuja, said: “I have had many consultations before declaring my interest.
“The consultations are still ongoing.
“Essentially, my vision for Bayelsa is that of a shared economic prosperity for the people of the state.
“The vision is about the government as a social investor and the government as an enabler to invite private sector capital.”
