The Peoples Democratic Party Elders Forum has on Monday, November 25, 2019, denounced the alleged role of former President Goodluck Jonathan in the November 16, 2019, governorship election in Bayelsa State.

In a statement in Yenagoa, the state capital, the forum’s chairman Benson Odoko said the action of the former President indicated that he supported the All Progressives Congress, APC, during the election.

He added that Jonathan, who visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja before the election, kept his distance from the PDP throughout the campaigns.

Odoko recalled that the ex-President also refused to congratulate the PDP candidate, Douye Diri, who was Commissioner for Sports when Jonathan was governor.
