Patience Jonathan Causes Tension In Bayelsa #Beekhaybee

Dame Patience Jonathan, former First Lady,
has caused tension in Bayelsa state in the build
up to the forthcoming governorship election.
Patience is reportedly making moves to hijack
the Bayelsa state chapter of the Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) and the All
Progressives Congress, (APC).

Sun reports that a group simply known as the
‘Forum For Political Freedom in Bayelsa
State’ (FOPOF) accused Patience for using her
unlawfully acquired wealth to fund and create a
power bloc in the APC in the state, using
members of the defunct Transformation
Ambassadors of Nigeria whom she similarly
used to weaken the leadership of the opposition
party in the state in the period leading up to the
last presidential poll which her husband lost.
Elder Adenzi Kakarite, a leader of the group has
released a statement which reads in part: ”The
former First Lady is very greedy and selfish by
wanting to sponsor the candidates of both the
PDP and the APC, so that she can continue to
milk the state dry.
”Bayelsans must rise up and resist this woman,
who clearly does not mean well for Bayelsa
state, because she was partly the reason for the
husband’s defeat in the last presidential
election; and since she couldn’t succeed at the
national level, she wants to come and force a
governor of her choice down our throats. No,
we must resist it”.

calendar due to past annulments of elections.
