Wife of Former President of Nigeria absent at Dickson’s inauguration


Jonathan, wife absent at Dickson’s inauguration

Governor of Bayelsa State, Mr. Seriake Dickson, was on Sunday inaugurated for his second term in office. Dickson said his new term would focus on economic diversification, rural electrification scheme, massive investment in power to drive industrialization, youth empowerment and investment in agriculture. Former President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife, Patience, who recently attended a
thanksgiving ceremony organised in Port Harcourt by Governor of Rivers State, Mr. Nyesom Wike, were conspicuously absent at the swearing-in and thanksgiving service.
But governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), members of the National Assembly, the PDP’s National Working Committee (NWC), the party’s Board of Trustee (BoT) members, traditional rulers and many stalwarts of the party witnessed the event at the Samson Siasia Sports Complex, Yenagoa.

Some of the PDP governors in attendance were – Ayodele Fayose (Ekiti), Nyesom Wike (Rivers), Emmanuel Udom (Akwa Ibom), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), Ifeanyi Okowa (Delta), Dairus Ishaku (Taraba) and Dankwabo Ibrahim (Gombe).

The 2015 governorship candidate of PDP in Lagos, Jimi Agbaje; the Senate Minority Leader and his counterpart in the House of Representatives, Mr. Leo Ogori and a host of other dignitaries were also present at the occasion.

The state’s Chief Judge, Justice Kate Abiri, administered the oaths on the governor and his deputy, Rear Admiral John Jonah (rtd).
Abiri said she was empowered by Sections 185 (1) and 187 (2) of the 1999 Constitution as amended to perform the ceremony, adding that Dickson and his deputy were required to take fresh oaths to renew their mandates.
Speaking after the traditional parade by the police, Dickson said his victory was a testimony that the Ijaw nation had never and would not be conquered.
