Ben Bruce to become the next Bayelsa State Governor.
Former member of National Assembly, Senator Ben Bruce, has the sole ambition to become the next governor of Bayelsa State.
The Chairman of Silverbird Group, who opted not to return to the Senate, has made his next political agenda known after making several consultations with his followers and elders in his party, the People’s Democratic Party.
A dependable source confirmed that an agreement was struck between party leaders and Ben to cede his second term senatorial seat to another person to enable him focus more on his governorship bid.
The slot is sure for Ben Bruce because he has the backing of major players of the party, including the National Working Committee of PDP.
The election, which will determine the next governor of Bayelsa State, is scheduled for November 2019.
To achieve his aim, the former Director-General of National Television Authority has engaged in an intense groundwork to ensure he officially becomes the candidate of his party ahead of the November election.
