Timi Alaibe

 Former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Mr. Timi Alaibe on Thursday afternoon declared his intention to contest the governorship seat of Bayelsa State.

Declaring his intention in Lagos, Alaibe said he will run what he described as a Blue Ocean Economy as well as invite private sector capital to ensure sustainable development in the state.

He has also reportedly obtained the relevant form from the National Secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the governorship race.

Alaibe 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.”
