Previous President Dr. Good­luck Jonathan on Friday regretted the passing of first non military personnel legislative leader of Bayelsa State, Chief Diepreye Solomon Pe­ter Alamieyeseigha, taking note of that he had lost a senior sibling.

Dr. Jonathan who was Alamieye­seigha’s agent somewhere around 1999 and 2005 said, their relationship was not that of a representative and an appointee but rather, that of a senior sibling and a more youthful sibling.

Jonathan who talked in an emo­tion-loaded voice when he paid a sympathy visit to the Alamieye­seigha family at their living arrangement in Opolo,Yenagoa, on Friday, revealed that his association with Alamieye­seigha went before 1999

He said, “It is tragic. I straightforwardly filled in as an agent representative to Ala­mieyeseigha. I knew Alamieyeseigha amid the UNCP days when we were working for him. I never knew I would have been his delegate in light of the fact that that was not my advantage then. From that time, the political development in the nation and the state conveyed me to work with him. Also, from 1999, we have been as one. He generally took me as his more youthful sibling. Our re­lationship was not that of a gover­nor and an appointee but rather it was that of a more youthful sibling and a senior broth­er”.

Jonathan was joined by Governor Seriake Dickson, his delegate, John Jonah, Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Edmund Allison-Oguru and different authorities of government and senior statesmen.

Alamieyeseigha’s dowager, Marga­ret, separated in tears and sobbed un­controllably as Jonathan strolled into the comfortable living room in the palatial home with those on his entou­rage.

Jonathan, who conceded that, “it was just God that ceased tears from moving down my cheeks” when he saw her wailing, said he considers the Alamieyeseigha as his gang.

Jonathan noticed that without the Alamieyeseigha family no one would have known him on the planet.

He expressed that Alamieyeseigha’s end was an impolite stun to his prompt family as well as to Bayel­sans and the Ijaw country.

Jonathan lauded Alamieyesei­gha, focusing on that he was a coura­geous man who had a decent heart for Bayelsa, Ijaw land and the South-South area.

“Alamieyeseigha implied well for Bayelsa. He stood immovably for the Ijaw individuals. Alamieyeseigha needed to propel the South-South. He is some individual we had aggregate affection for,” he said.

Jonathan energized Mrs. Alami­eyeseigha, individuals from the atomic family and his admirers not to cry any longer in light of the fact that God was in control
