Ex-President Faces Suspension Over PDP Defeat In Bayelsa


Ex-President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan may be suspended from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) over his alleged support of the All Progressives Congress (APC) which led to the defeat of his party on Saturday, November 16 governorship election in Bayelsa State.

 PDP leaders are planning to punish those who worked against their interests during the governorship election in Bayelsa.

Jonathan had earlier withdrew his support for the PDP over a disagreement between him and Governor Seriake Dickson on who should represent the party in the governorship election in Bayelsa and was absent during Senator Douye Diri’s campaign grand finale.

There are speculations that Jonathan and his wife voted for the APC candidate David Lyon, during the election.

Also, Jonathan hosting two APC governors in his town, his non-support for Douye Diri during the primary election, his non-attendance of the PDP grand rally, his visit to Buhari at the presidential villa, and the prayers made by his mother in support of Lyon have fuelled the speculations.

Kola Ologbondiyan said the party is investigating the loss of the election in both Bayelsa and Kogi and if Jonathan is found guilty of engaging in any form of anti-party activity, he is liable to any or a combination of penalties such as reprimand, censure, fine, suspension with a fine, debarment from holding any party office, removal from office, or expulsion from the party, as provided in section 59 of the PDP Constitution 2017.
