A lot of pdp pundits are now claiming that Timi Alaibe would have won if he was the pop candidate.

What is your take on that?

Well I can't really say
But whether you agree with it or not, Apc did some little rigging here and there in bayelsa to score that number of votes.
If Alaibi was the candidate, Apc rigging would have been resisted.
All hail Jonathan Aka The Judas Of Bayelsa

Aliabe was a preferred candidate to most Bayelsa elderstatesmen including GEJ. Beign a man held in high esteem by his people, he would have used his influence to sway the votes in the favour of Ndutimi Alaibe. APC leaders visit to the elderstatesman proves that they couldnt have achieve their success without his support.
The voting pattern too. In Ogbia for example, -home of GEJ, APC won a landslide which is unprecedented beign the home council of GEJ and PDP stronghold ever since the creation of Bayelsa. Evidently because, his kinsmen saw it as a slight by Dickson on their own blood. Even in Kolga voter turn out was low, and the few that voted, did mostly in favour of APC, it is no suprise as this is the LGA of Ndutimi Alaibe, so KOLGAns said if its not our kinsman I won't cast my vote.
The election could have still gone either way, pdp would have had a big say in the outcome, but for Dickson selfish intrest it was one sided. This election was a revolution against impending god-fatherism in Bayelsa.

Yes, because Buhari and APC are not popular in Bayelsa. What happened was a protest vote, Bayelsans didn't want a repeat of what James Ibori did with his cousin in Delta state.

Lol. PDP's structure was used to make APC win. Governor Dickson is only a figure head leader of PDP in the state that is not in control of the structure.

So yes, if Alaibe had contested on PDP's platform David Lyon will not be the governor-elect today. Alaibe for win Lyon with over 2.5 self. Lol

Alaibe's emergence would have been s departure from Dicksons style ..hence people would not have transferred their anger against Dickson to Pdp and Alaibe

Secondly the state elders that preferred him would have been able to galvanize support for him across the state


Thirdly with Alaibe on the ballot people would have seen the glaring educational deficiencies of Lyon which is still very evident but the anger against Dickson blinded people from seeing this


Alaibe would not have picked ehrujakpo an urhobo man with negative electoral value

The choice of Lawrence ehrujakpo angered a lot of people that initially planned yo vote pdp

The rejection of alaibe by Dickson was key to bayelsans voting against Dickson and his candidate couple with his bad governance. He really govern bayelsa like a dick.

Timi alaibe was a critic of Dickson's bad governance.

Bayelsans wanted Alaibe. But since Mr dick was against him bayelsans went against him and his candidate.

To worsen everything Mr dick does not have the support of bayelsan elders and it political stalwarts even Jonathan was against him. He disrespected them and thought he can do things alone.

Not at all. David Lyon is widely and well loved by majority of bayelsans due to his antecedents.

You guys with low understanding of politics. What is Jonathan doing in Bayelsa? Is that not also god-fatherism?

He is swaying public opinion by saying Dickson is trying to foist his stooge on the people. Since Jonathan reached the limelight, successive governors in Bayelsa always need him by their side before the can win election. Isn't that also what is called god-fatherism?

even if pdp had a messiah, the fact still remains that we in Bayelsa were already tired and fed up with the party.
with all the huge allocations due to our resources yet there is nothing to show for it.
our youths are jobless and had no choice but to delve into crime, the major roads in Bayelsa are in a deplorable condition due to the mal administration of the corrupt leaders.

Apc has come to stay and I pray Lyon really works hard to satisfy the electorate who voted him in
