Moses Siloko Siasia is set to dump the PDP on Friday 21st of August,2015 with over 700 youth leaders across the 8 Local Government areas of the state for a new party yet to be confirmed. A source within the Moses Siasia campaign Organization who pleaded anonymity revealed the planned exodus by the 35year old gubernatorial aspirant in Bayelsa State.
The decision by Moses Siasia to dump the PDP is based on two major reasons, injustice to other aspirants by the new selected exco of the party who were installed by Dickson and lack of internal democracy within the various organs of the party in the state. The source has also informed us that over 15 political parties within the state might have adopted Moses Siasia as their sole candidate and want him to run on their platforms.
According to the source, Moses Siasia is leaving the PDP because he is convinced the party is not yet ready to change its ways of imposition and godfatherism. He said Moses is convinced that the PDP has not learnt its lesson as to why it lost power at the centre and will surely suffer the same fate at the forth-coming elections in the state. He furthered stated that what PDP has been doing in Bayelsa since 1999 is a situation where just some few people within the party seat down and decides who get what, when and how. The source expresses disgust at the lack of internal party democracy within the PDP in Bayelsa State saying only the governor is micro managing the affairs of the party.
The source said even former president Goodluck Jonathan is afraid of governor Dickson now as he cannot do anything to save the party or show leadership in the state. Governor Dickson is running the PDP in Bayelsa State like a private estate. There is no reason to continue to stay in the party with him. It is advisable for everyone to leave the party for him so he can do as he wishes with it. Very soon, he will be the only one left in the party the source said. When we asked the source, if Siasia will be joining the team of decampees to APC, he replied that Moses Siasia will not join APC because of the cultural mentality of the Ijaw people who see APC as the party responsible for the defeat of their kinsman Goodluck Jonathan. Moses Siasia is very loyal to the Ijaw race and will never do anything to offend them or hurt their emotions. He is a patriotic Ijaw son and he is not a shortsighted person.
