Jonathan’s Kinsmen Jubiliate As PDP Suffers Defeat

Kinsmen of former President Goodluck Jonathan in Kolo, Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, on Saturday trooped to the streets to celebrate the defeat of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ward 9.

The celebrants reportedly took over the road leading to Ogbia Town immediately the results of the 13 units in Ward 9 were announced by electoral officials and APC was declared the winner of the ward.

The Nation Newspaper reports that some of them flew the flag of APC while others used their brooms to sweep the road saying they had suffered under the current PDP government.

Some of them said they were given as much as N10,000 but that they rejected the money because they were United and determined to vote out PDP.

“We are happy because we won the PDP in all the units” The Nation quoted an unnamed celebrant as saying.

Also in Eppie-Atissa in Yenagoa, residents were said to have taken over the road jubilating over the defeat of the PDP in the area.
