ALAMIEYESEIGHA NOW READY FOR SENATE THE CONTROVERSIAL PARDON

alamsI had reasons to suspect that there were also political motives to his travails; although that did not detract from the fact that he looted Bayelsa State treasury, a crime to which he actually confessed. Following his arrest in 2005, according to the story, Alamieyeseigha was brought to the villa in handcuff and made to prostrate before Obasanjo. With his legs firmly placed atop Alamieyeseigha’s back, Obasanjo reportedly said to the former Bayelsa State Governor: “You said I am not electable for a second term but here I am now and see where you are!” So to the extent that Alamieyeseigha has suffered humiliation on account of his crime and has served terms, granting him pardon was a bad idea,  this will move by GEJ will encourage some of his colleagues who may have stolen more money than him to walk freely. I am also aware that unlike some cantankerous presidential ‘godfather’, Alamieyeseigha (who commands enormous respect among Ijaw elite), has started nursing ambition in the background to represent in the upper house.
