The Speaker of Bayelsa State House of Assembly, Hon. Emmanuel Isenah, has reportedly resigned following pressures mounted on him by the leadership of his party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Sources say the controversy surrounding the pressures on the Isenah lasted for over two weeks with his initial reluctance to resign as directed by party leaders ahead of the November 16th governorship election.
Yans gathered that one Hon. Monday Obolo representing Southern Ijaw Constituency 2 is expected to succeed Isenah is an arrangement targeted to assuaging the people of the Southern Ijaw area where the flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief David Lyon haild from.
A source claimed that Obolo’s factor will douse the high expectation of massive votes for the APC in the coming November 16th Governorship poll.
Another source, who spoke on the development, said Isenah decided to resign so that he won’t be blamed in case the PDP fails to win the Governorship election.
