Jonathan commends Ikoli for joining Bayelsa guber race
Former President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has commended Chief Anthony George-Ikoli SAN, a gubernatorial aspirant in the forthcoming Bayelsa State governorship election, for joining the race, saying his emergence will bring credibility and respect to the exercise.
The former president said this when Ikoli visited him in his Abuja home, where he formally informed him of his aspiration, and also presented his blueprint for the development of the state.
The former president said: “Some of us have been thinking of zoning because of fairness. But competence will definitely erase that fear, as a competent leader will be fair to all. In any case, in less than 50 years from now, nobody will be talking about zoning. “
