An allegation have been made against the former President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and his wife, Chief Goodluck Jonathan and Chief (Mrs) Patience Jonathan by the Bayelsa State Chapter of People Democratic Party (PDP) campaign group that the high profiled politicians have caused confusion in the camp of party by supporting and encouraging various governorship aspirant to step into the governorship race.
The group had cry out that the action of the former President and his wife could make the party to lose in the next governorship elections in the states. The chairman of the group Isaac Ipidei said that the former President has invited many Bayelsan men to pick up the form and join the governorship race in the state and that Patience Jonathan, the wife of the former President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and her close political colleague, Kind AJ Turner have been having a secret meeting with a Chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC) , Chief Timipre Sylvia.
The group’s State coordinator, Mr Ipidei have raised an alarm and call the notice of the National Leadership of the People Democratic Party (PDP) to call the former president and his ally to order, so as not to toil with the victory of the party in the upcoming November 16 governorship election. He added, if the former President, Chief Goodluck Jonathan is not called to order, it might to loss of power for pdp in his country home.
The state coordinate added, that it is not expected from someone like the Former President who rose to the highest position politically under the umbrella of the people Democratic Party will be the one to be behind such, sponsoring another candidate who is against the party’s wish. He told the party faithful in the state to avoid the former’s presidents decision, whom he had earlier accused to neglect to support our great party at the time things were hard both financially and morally since 2012
In his allegations, he accused the former presidents for not supporting the people Democratic Party campaigns in the last general election but went ahead to give support to the opposition, APC and ADC. He said he had told the national working committee that the former president and his wife had supported some individuals they sponsored which is against the party wish in the last elections.
If you could recall, chief Goodluck Jonathan didn’t make any public address when the party was attacked by the military where we lost a PDP ward chairman, Mr Seidougha Taribi and a photographer affiliated to the Government house, Mr Reginald Dei in Southern Ijaw of the State.
