Chief Benson Agadaga, an associate and kinsman of Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has declared interest to contest the Bayelsa governorship election slated for November 16, 2019.

Agadaga, National Chairman, Ogbia Brotherhood Worldwide, a Socio-Cultural group, said on Sunday in Yenagoa that he was ready to bring development to the people if elected.

According to him, his aspiration was borne out of his desire to continue to serve the people of Bayelsa at the highest level having served as a former Commissioner for Information.

Agadaga currently serves as Special Adviser on Establishment to Bayelsa Governor, Hon Seriake Dickson.

He sought the support of the people of Ogbia and Bayelsa in general, adding that he was the most suitable person with experience to take the state to the greater heights.

“I seize this opportunity to seek the support and blessings of the foremost Socio-Cultural Organisation of the people of Ogbia Kingdom and entire people of Bayelsa to contest in the gubernatorial elections.

“This is in furtherance of my passion for public service in many capacities and this time I seek the office of the governor and I appeal to the people to support my ambition,” he said.

Reacting to the development, King George Lawson, an Ogbia Monarch said he was excited over Agadaga’s intention to contest as governor and prayed to God for mercy and success.

“We, the Ogbia people are satisfied with his leadership of Ogbia Brotherhood.

“Considering his antecedents and impressive performance in all the offices he served in the state, Bayelsa people will be full of joy for giving him the mandate to serve as governor,” the King stated.
