State Pardon: Alamieyeseigha Says Jonathan Had No Choice

By SaharaReporters, New York
Former Bayelsa State Governor
and ex-convict, DSP
Alamieyeseigha has said that
President Goodluck Jonathan
had no choice in the state
pardon he recently granted to
him, as it was a deal that had
been negotiated since the
tenure of late President Umaru
““Well, it (state pardon) started
during the late President
Yar’Adua’s reign,” he said in
Lagos yesterday. “It was a
pardon that was negotiated.
People who don’t know what
happened are the ones talking.”
The ex-convict held back on
what the deal was, but boasted
that President Jonathan was his
deputy as Bayelsa State
Governor, and was part of the
entire deal that he would
disclose in a memoir he is
“Like I said, the pardon was
negotiated and if I fulfilled my
own part of the bargain, why
shouldn’t the Federal
Government fulfill its part?” he
“President Goodluck Jonathan
was part of the negotiating
team. There is no person in this
country that knows issues
surrounding Alamieyeseigha
better than Mr President. He
was my deputy governor and all
that transpired were known to
him. I am already writing my
memoir.  At the appropriate
time, you will know that my
pardon was in order.”
Reviewing the comment today,
a political observer in Abuja
described Alamieyeseigha “a
balloon of hot air.”
He told SaharaReporters, “There
is nothing that an individual
convict could have negotiated
with the federal government by
which to obtain pardon. Alams
did not negotiate anything and
could not have negotiated
anything. This is like IBB telling
Nigerians he will soon disclose
the reason for annulling the
1992 elections.  IBB has been
making that promise for 20
years now, but he cannot fulfill
it because words cannot frame
the depth of his betrayal of
Nigeria.  Alams took advantage
of a weakling in presidential
office that used to be his
Deputy Governor, that is all.   I
feel sorry for Nigeria and
Nigerians.” Saharareporters
gathered that Alamieyeseigha
has begun moves to throw his
full questionable weight behind
President Jonathan’s 2015
presidential ambitions, as that is
the only way the ongoing hoax
can survive.
