PHOTOS: Jonathan, Wife Celebrate Lyon’s Victory With APC Leaders

Some leaders of the All Progressive Congress (APC) were at the residence of former President Goodluck Jonathan in Bayelsa on Sunday.

The former President Goodluck Jonathan, wife was pictured celebrating with Jigawa Governor Badaru, Chairman APC Campaign Organisation with Senator Ita Enang during a visit to their residence.

On the delegation were Jigawa State Governor, Badaru Abubakar, Kebbi State Governor, Atiku Bagudu, Ita Enang, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Niger Delta Affairs, Ita Enang, among others.

It is still unclear if it was a courtesy or ‘Thank you visit’ as being suggested in some quarters.

Jonathan reportedly fell out with Governor Seriake Dickson after the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) primaries that produced Senator Douye Diri.

He was conspicuously absent at the candidates’s campaign grand finale.

Recall that the APC won Jonathan’s LGA, Ogbia, with a wide margin.

On October 10, Jonathan and President Muhammadu Buhari held a closed-door meeting, at the Presidential Villa, a parley analysts some are linking to the governorship poll.

Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the APC candidate David Lyon, on his victory.

Lyon won six Local Government Areas out of the eight in the state to defeat Diri, who won just two LGAs – Sagbama and Kolokuma/Opokuma.
