Bayelsa Election: Goodluck Jonathan was used by APC against PDP – Gov. Dickson

Governor Seriake Dickson has claimed that former President Goodluck Jonathan was used by the All Progressives Congress against the Peoples Democratic Party in the Saturday’s governorship election in Bayelsa State.

He said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would challenge the result of Nov. 16 Bayelsa governorship election in court.

He disclosed this while addressing a world press conference in Yenagoa on Tuesday.

He maintained that the PDP did not lose the election as it was characterised by violence and widespread malpractices, which were carefully documented.

He said the endorsement of Mr David Lyon, the governor-elect, by ex-president Good luck Jonathan was regrettable and a ploy by the APC to strategically take over the state, NAN reports.

He said that the perception that he alienated PDP stakeholders including the former president was unfounded adding that the primary election that produced the PDP candidate was credible.

Dickson, however, said he would set up a transition committee to work out modalities for smooth handover on Feb. 14, 2020.
