Top News

Barrister Olusegun Bamgbose, the National Coordinator, for Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, CAGG, has taunted former President Goodluck Jonathan over the sack of David Lyon, an ALL Progressive Congress (APC) Governor-elect whom the Supreme Court upturn his election.


Following the disagreement that leads to the falling apart between Governor Seriake Dickson of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and former President Jonathan, there were indications that Mr Jornathan and his family supported the candidate of the APC during the Bayelsa gubernatorial election and celebrated his victory.

Consequently, Barrister Bamgbose had warned former President Jonathan of the Danger of supporting the APC informing him that the APC would disgrace him.

However, there was a massive twist on Thursday when the Supreme Court sacked Lyon a day to the swearing-in ceremony which President Muhammadu Buhari had concluded plans to attend.

Bamgbose in his statement stated the Supreme Court judgement that upturned the victory of David Lyon must have come as a shock to former president Jonathan who tactically worked for the victory of the APC.

He said it could be recalled he warned President Jonathan to quit election instead of hobnobbing with the APC because the APC might likely disappoint him and it has happened.

“Even though he has congratulated Duoye Diri and he advised him to unite with others to move the State forward, that is inconsequential because the deed has been done.

“One would have expected Jonathan to stand with him but he chose not to support Duoye Diri who was once his Commissioner.

“The Governor will certainly not respect him having abandoned him when he needed him most.”

Bamgbose still insist on advising former President Jonathan to quit politics to save his good name.

He called on Jonathan to declare himself as an elder stateman so that he will continue to enjoy respect because currently, he has lost out.
