BAYELSA GUBER: Jonathan didn’t vote for APC – Omokri

RUGA: Buhari govt has become a laughing stock –Jonathan

A former media aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has denied reports that his former boss voted for the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Saturday’s governorship election in Bayelsa.

Omokri, who spoke moments after Jonathan’s kinsmen stormed the streets of Ogbia local government area and celebrated the APC victory in Ward 9, said the former President voted for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the election.

Reacting to the rumour on his Twitter handle, Omokri wrote: “I just spoke to former President @GEJonathan and he confirmed to me that he did not vote for APC.

“He voted for the @OfficialPDPNig. He has, he is and he will ALWAYS be committed to the PDP. Please be guided.”

According to reports, the rumour came out because Jonathan did not show his support for the PDP, candidate, Douye Diri, and matters got worse after Jonathan’s mother reportedly endorsed the APC candidate prior to the election.
