As Bayelsans prepare to elect a new governor on December 5, there are indications that the wife of the former president, Dame Patience Jonathan, may be indirectly backing the governorship ambition of Chief Timipre Sylva, the immediate past governor of Bayelsa State, who wants to contest the gubernatorial election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Sources revealed that in a meeting convened by Mrs. Jonathan recently, in Otuoke, she read the.....
riot act to members of her group asking them not to support the re-election of the incumbent governor, Hon Henry Seriake Dickson.
The former First Lady prefers Dr. Weripamowei Dudafa, former presidential aide to the immediate past president, Goodluck Jonathan and Commissioner for Local Government under Sylva.
It was gathered that Mrs. Jonathan directed members of her political group to support the aspiration of Sylva.
When some of the people at the meeting raised observation as to the practicality and feasibility of working for Sylva when the former president, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan had openly declared support for Dickson, the former First Lady reportedly told them that Jonathan won’t support Dickson when the chips are down.
