Chief Ben Okoro being Chairman of the Elders forum that issued the statement in Yenagoa, Criticized the former President for Openly Fraternizing with the APC, the Party's main opponent in the election, noting that the former president, by his recent actions, did not leave anybody in doubt that he was suppourting the APC against the very party that made him, Deputy Governor, Governor, Vice President and President of Nigeria.
He stated that the former president who visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential villa in Abuja for an undisclosed mission just before the election kept his distance from the PDP and its members throughout the period of the campaigns leading to the Elections.
The Bayelsa State PDP Elders Forum Chairman further lamented it was even more stupefying the visit to Former President Jonathan by APC Leaders shortly after the "Charade" called Elections and another visit by the leaders of the APC in the State, Chief Timipre Sylva, and the Eventual Declared Winner of the Elections Chief David Lyon.
According to the PDP Elders forum chairman, he stated that these actions of Jonathan clearly portrayed him as having betrayed the PDP which gave him the platform to occupy the highest Position In the Country, Bayelsa State, and millions of PDP members just to protect his selfish interest...
He Argued that the argument that Jonathan worked against the PDP because his prefered candidate, Chief Timi Alaibe, lost in the primaries was a pathetic perfidy ment to cover up the real reasons for this betrayal against Bayelsans and Nigerians.
Odoko called on the National leadership of the PDP to invoke disciplinary actions against Jonathan for working against his party and openly celebrating an opposition victory against the party which made him president.
