The People’s Democratic Party ( PDP) may have taken a major step towards its doom in Bayelsa state , following the condemnation of the list of preferred aspirants reeled out by governor Seriake Dickson towards the approaching governorship election in the state.
The list of the PDP aspirants was released ahead the party’s primary election ahead of the November governorship poll.
Dickson’s political family, the Restoration Caucus of the PDP, in a statement, named only three persons as members of the caucus that had indicated interests to pick the governorship forms.
They are the Chief of Staff, Government House, Talford Ongolo, the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Kemela Okara and the Senator representing the Bayelsa Central Senatorial District, Senator Douye Diri.
Soon after the release of the names by the government, members of the party took to their various social media platforms to reject the choice of the governor.
While condemning the aspirants described as unpopular and stingy the party members said the party should be prepared to lose the state to the All Progressives Congress (APC) if it settled for any of the three aspirants them.
Most of the commentators, who said they would not allow any stingy person to fly the flag of the PDP, added that it was inconceivable for the governor to contemplate any of the three names as his successor.
Most of them urged the governor to drop the idea or they would be forced to vote for whoever the APC would present as its candidate.
One of them Onitsha Miepanmo wrote: “Dickson is a good man and has a golden heart for the Ijaw People. He cannot afford to see Bayesla People suffer after his successful two terms in office. But I was shocked to see an official statement from his Special Adviser regarding the forthcoming gubernatorial election.
“The announcement of three aspirants as preferred candidate among so many vibrant aspirants inside the PDP that will continue the good works started by the Restoration administration is uncalled for. I believe Dickson doesn’t have hand in this so-called stingy preferred candidates”.
In his reaction, Ibifaa Princewill, said the governor would play into the hands of the opposition if he decided to work for any of the three aspirants to emerge as the PDP candidate while Collins Baker described them as worst aspirants.
A known leader of the PDP, Tokpo Coronation, said none of the persons mentioned in the statement could win an election.
Poison scare: God will Expose Wicked People Around Me- Davido
Multiple award-winning Nigerian singer, Davido, has taken to his verified Twitter account with over nine million followers to state that God will expose any “wickedness” around him.
In his tweet, the iconic singer wrote, “God will expose and deal with any wickedness around me; near or far, Amen. I’m blessed.”
His tweet comes shortly after a video snippet surfaced online where a cleric claimed that he had a revelation the pop star would be poisoned by someone living under his roof.
“I told you about one singer, Davido. They will poison him; I don’t know him and I have never seen him in my life. They will put something in his drink; he will be rushed to the hospital, will be admitted, and unconscious. The person that will poison him is sleeping in his house,” the cleric said.
More so, the singer’s former personal assistant, Aloma, in a recent interview, revealed that in 2017, he was offered N100m by someone in the music industry to implicate Davido in the death of his friend, Tagbo.
Aloma said, “When we were at the Police station, Lion Building, they took me to a room and said that I am a ‘fall man’. Beware of this music industry, everyone is trying their best to pull David down.
“They told me to write a statement which will state that David killed Tagbo. They gave me a cheque of N100m just for me to write that David killed Tagbo.”
