She cannot now because of anger allow Bayelsa to be under the APC. Though I don’t know who she is supporting, I know that she can never vote the APC against the PDP.
In a bid to stop the All Progressives Congress (APC) from taking power in Bayelsa state, one of the major power brokers in the state has decided to mend fences with the state's Governor, Seriake Dickson.
According to Punch Newspapers, the rift between former first lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, widely known as Mama Peace, and the governor has ended.
Punch Newspapers reports that the reconciliatory move is aimed at garnering support for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to ensure that the APC does not win the forth-coming elections in Bayelsa, which will be a taint on the former first family's political image.
Speaking on the development, A source close to Mrs Jonathan,a former Commissioner for Special Duties (Federal Project), Mike Ogiasa, who spoke to Punch Newspapers, said “The Jonathans are known to me. As a close family member, I know her very well. She can suppress her anger against someone and do the right thing. As I am talking to you, I believe, as a typical PDP woman, she can never support another political party against the choice of the PDP."
Adding that “In politics, there is unity in diversity. People disagree to agree. It was not a hidden fact that Governor Dickson was at loggerheads with Dame Patience Jonathan. But it is also true that by human nature, she may not have supported Dickson. But she has weighed it and discovered that the election is beyond Dickson."
“She cannot now because of anger allow Bayelsa to be under the APC. Though I don’t know who she is supporting, I know that she can never vote the APC against the PDP,” Ogiasa said.
Mrs. Jonathan reportedly asked all aggrieved party members, including former Special Adviser to the President on Domestic Matters, Dr. Waripamowei Dudafa, who had fallen out with the Bayelsa Governor, to sheath their swords and support the PDP.
