Buhari’s Ex-minister Sen. Heineken Lokpobiri Joins Bayelsa Guber Race

Sen. Heineken Lokpobiri, immediate past Minister of State for Agriculture and Rural Development, has declared his intention to contest for the November 16 Governorship election in Bayelsa on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC).

Lokpobiri made his intention known on Saturday after consultation with the state leadership of the APC at the party’s Secretariat in Yenagoa.

Lokpobiri told the party leadership that he was ready to lead APC to the “Creek Haven’’, Bayelsa State seat of power, so that he can build an economy beyond oil for the state.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Lokpobiri was a two-term senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, before his appointment as a minister of states for agriculture by President Buhari.

  1. Bayelsa indigenes need to be careful, else the wrong people get into the seat of power. People with questionable characters shouldn't be given a chance.

    1. What played out in Rivers State will likely play out in Bayelsa as Timipre Sylver has intentions of joining the race and if he does he would make sure he clinch the the party ticket. There is bad blood between the two already.

  2. You mean his name iss really realy Heineken? 😂.

  3. I had relatives that bore Brandy, Whiskey and a lot more.
    It’s good to be enlightened. Dude needs to do a change if name.

    1. Why should he? Leave us with our weird names. We are cool with them. We find them unique.

    2. Change of name.

    3. Ama Ebiere, I am an Izon Ere. How will l leave you guys with your weird names?
      Can you imagine his grandma calling him when he’s playing outside. She will yell, Heiiiiiiiiinnnneeekeennn yooooooooooo. Make you come chop. Fiai fadei yei.
