But one thing that you need to know about Dr. Goodluck Jonathan is that he is never worried over anything and this is because of his absolute confidence in God.
Apart from being a good leader of the largest African nation Nigeria, with all the challenges, he still was not failing on his duties to his immediate family.
He gave time to his beautiful wife Dame Patience Jonathan, mother of Nigeria and of Africa, the Mother of Peace, popularly called, "Mama Peace". The photo you see here is a testimony of the love, joy and peace of the Goodluck Jonathan family which was the magic wand the husband and wife used to lead Nigeria to safe landing, no matter the drums and songs of war. Today, May 29th 2015, is the day you are handing over Nigeria into the hands of General Muhammadu Buhari safe and peaceful. And as we prepare to receive you back home, we say; CONGRATULATIONS!

And after a brief ceremony of a handing over ceromony by the out going president Jonathan to the in-coming president Muhammadu Buhari, the former is expected to return to his state of origin, Bayelsa to be treated to rousing welcome by the state government, led by, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson.
Meanwhile a Committee set up by the state government to package a befitting programme in honour of Mr.President has been sitting day and night to achieve its purpose.
All effortd to get an official
statement from the Ministry of Information and from the Office of tge Special Adviser to the Governor on Political matters, has not been succesful.
Highly plagued by the fuel crisis Bayelsa state economy suffered set back at all levels. At the public sector, most offices were under locks and keys, while the private sector suffered deprivations

The people of Bayelsa State are now curiously waiting for a most unpredictable govrrnorship poll in the state. This may not be unconnrcted with change of government that occured at the federal level with the success of the opposition, the APC sweeping asside the PDP at the presidency and majority seats in the Senate and the house of representatives. The only known contender for now is the State governor, Hon. Seriake Dickson who is gunning for a second tenure ticket.
But there are strong indications that some Abuja based politicians, comprising, some senators, members of the house of representatives and other political big wigs of both the PDP, APC, LP and APGA amongst others are in top preparations to open their campaign offices to wrestle Dickson on the governorship poll.
According to Golden Pen Abuja correspondent, the PDP itself at the national secretariat is not ready to come out with a sole candidate option to skip a party primay to have the incumbet, Governor Dickson emerge as the party's candidate, but is bent on organising a party primary. This confirms that, the factionalised PDP in the state will shake the Bayelsa to its foundation, to finally arrive at who should be the csndidate of the party.
Should govetnor Dickson emerge, the second option is to present a credible candidate of the APC to battle Dickson at the campaign with a view to leading Bayelsa out of opposition at the national level by installing an APC governor.
Our correspondent said that, a credible candidate of Epie origin has been considered to succeed Dickson.
