Stakeholders from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have warned the Bayelsa State Governor, Douye Diri, to beware of a former member of the House of Representatives, Israel Sunny-Goli, who recently claimed to have betrayed his benefactor of many years, Chief Timipre Sylva.

The stakeholders under the auspices of the PDP Alliance for Democracy, said Sunny-Goli’s public declaration of support for Diri’s second term appeared to be a game plan insisting that the former lawmaker might be acting a script.

The group in a statement in Yenagoa, by its Convener, Arc. Ekiye Akposeye, asked Diri to be careful adding that the period was too sensitive to have fifth columnists around him.

The PDP stakeholders said: ”If we remember well, in 2019 we lost the main elections because of betrayers, we cannot afford to tow that path this time.

“We all know that Hon. Sunny-Goli is like a son to Sylva and practically grew up with him. Sylva made him SA Youths as Governor; made him Bayelsa State House of Assembly member and House of Representative member plus a plethora contracts..Why would anyone think that Sunny-Goli and Sylva are actually at war.


“We urge Diri and members of our great party, the PDP, to eat with such people with a long spoon. We do not trust them because we know their antecedents”.

The group said Diri’s continuation in office for another four years would be determined by how he handled the likes of Sunny-Goli, whom they said might be a mole in the PDP.
