Like we all don’t know there is more to it than we are presently hearing.
According to people in the know, pardoned Bayelsa’s former governor, Chief Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, is on his way to bouncing back into the political scene as he may be nominated as a minister.
A report covered by Saturday Sun said that the main reason pardon was granted Alamieyeseigha is to pave way for him to get a government appointment.
It was gathered that there is a high level plot to nominate the former governor as minister of petroleum, in the expected cabinet reshuffle. A source revealed: “The president plans a total overhaul of the federal cabinet in the next couple of months, and part of the plan is to make sure Alamieyeseigha gets a ministerial slot, and possibly or very likely the oil minister’s post.”
However, with the backlash over his recent pardon, a Plan B is said to be put in place to ensure he gets elected into the Senate in 2015.
Welcome to Nigeria, where anything is politically possible.
