The All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate, Timipre Sylva, chided former President Goodluck Jonathan over his comment on the outcome of the just-concluded governorship election in Bayelsa State.

Sylva described Jonathan’s comment on the election as unfortunate.

Recall that Governor Douye Diri of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, had won his reelection bid during last Saturday’s governorship election.

Congratulating Diri, Jonathan said his victory would further improve the security situation in the state.

The former president said he would have relocated his mother to Abuja of Diri had lost his reelection bid on Saturday.

Reacting, Sylva wondered if the former president made the remark.

Recounting a comment by Wole Soyinka, Sylva said a hippopotamus can’t be taken out of a swamp.

Posting on X, Sylva wrote: “Former President Goodluck Jonathan’s statement is unfortunate. I sincerely hope he was misquoted.

“Let me quote our respected Wole Soyinka: “You can take the hippopotamus out of the swamp, but you cannot take the swamp out of the hippopotamus.”

Foolish man. Look at the person he is even make reference to as well respected. The presidential election saga has actually made is dymistify woke Soyinka. He is a tribalist, he speaks from.both sides of his mouth. Nothing to respect about a man that cannot speak the truth at his age. An old man fool of lies.  No respect for such people. He does not command that respect he used to command.. I am sorry to let you know this. Foolish people t
