An ex security adviser to Bayelsa State Government, Chief Perekeme Kpodoh, has tagged the alleged consultation meeting by leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) with ex president Olusegun Obasanjo as unacceptable. It has been alleged that there are meetings with the former president over who should be the flag bearer of the state in the upcoming governorship election.
It was gathered by DAILY POST that some politicians were not pleased that there was an alliance going with the duo of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, Seriake Dickson and former President Goodluck Jonathan over who should be the flag bearer of PDP in the state.
“Politicians can not give us a Governorship candidate without the knowledge of what Bayelsa people are feeling. Past candidates endorsed have failed the people. Bayelsa State have learnt a lot. All those they endorsed in the past only cart away money for themselves and their god fathers. The State has become a state in darkness with uncompleted projects everywhere,” he added.
“They have gone to Otta again. That is what happened when they brought in the man who headed NDDC before with uncompleted projects everywhere. Then , NDDC was lucrative and no god father was able to caution them. The people they are advocating was in charge of all the investment monies brought by foreign interest that wants to partner and invest in the Niger Delta regin.But those monies till today are unaccounted for. Are they bringing them again to plunge the region into looting and poverty?
“If the PDP think they have a god father somewhere, they should know that the APC also have a god father in the present President, Muhammadu Buhari. It is high time the government change from PDP to APC in the state.
” For 22 years, Bayelsa don’t have roads, no power and there is abject poverty written on the faces of Bayelsa people. When you come into Bayelsa today and that single road is blocked, everyone will be stranded. And Bayelsa has gotten trillions of naira. It is high time Bayelsa people take their destiny on their hands and choose candidates with the right vision to build a Bayelsa of our dreams,” Kpodoh said.
