Former President Goodluck Jonathan has unveiled his preferred candidate for the November 11 governorship election in Bayelsa State.
Jonathan backed Governor Douye Diri of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for a second tenure because of the stability of the state.
He said Governor Diri had done well to deserve a second term in office, especially in infrastructural development and security.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Daniel Alabrah, on Wednesday, November 7.
Party leaders visited Bayelsa state for the grand finale of Diri’s re-election campaign rally at the Ox-Bow Lake Pavilion in the state capital.
Meanwhile, former President Olusegun Obasanjo may have backed Diri for a second term in office.
According to Obasanjo, if you have a horse that is winning in a race, there is no need to change it, referring to Governor Diri’s second-term bid.
Obasanjo said the governor had done well to be given a second chance.
