EXCLUSIVE: Ben Bruce likely to emerge as VP under PDP as he abandoned his senatorial ambition

Bayelsa- Senator Ben Murray Bruce is fighting a losing battle to return to the Senate due to the zoning arrangement in Bayelsa East Senatorial district.

According to the zoning arrangement, it is the turn of Ogbia Local Government Area to produce the next senator. Already, Mr Foingha Jepthah, an aide to Governor Dickson, has indicated interest to run for the office. He is said to be engaged in consultations, with the hope of getting the endorsement of the PDP.
According to sources in Ben Bruce’s camp, the Senator has accepted his fate on the return to the Senate and he is now working to be Vice President to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

Sources in both camps confirmed that Alhaji Atiku already promised to nominate Ben Bruce on his ticket if he wins the October 6 primaries in Port Harcourt.

Senator Ben Murray Bruce declared his total support for Atiku Abubakar four months ago when Governor Dickson and the Bayelsa PDP sealed his fate with the Zoning arrangement.
