Bayelsa State deputy governor, Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo is in hot soup.
A group in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bayelsa Progressive Vanguard (BPV) has exposed the deputy governor.
In a statement signed by BPV leader, Erepadei Ebiowei said:
“We are constrained to issue this statement with deep sense of responsibility to inform Governor Douye Diri to watch his back as we are no longer comfortable with the activities of his Deputy, Senator Lawrence Ewhrudjakpor.”
“We have seen that he had adjudged Diri’s tolerance and politics of inclusion to naivety and was exploiting the governor’s benevolence for some selfish interests.”
“Ewhrudjakpor is exploiting the kindness, tolerance and Diri’s inclusive style of politics by acting out his master’s playbook. It is therefore time for the governor to be vigilant.”
