Who would blame the dark-complexioned man who in recent years has had almost everything he ever wished for thrust at him?

But there are times when these virtues are just not enough to secure a man his dreams.

Alaibe, who was considered a favourtite to win the election, was defeated by Diri, a senator representing Bayelsa Central in an election which saw the senator scoring 561 votes to Alaibe’s 365.

Indeed, the office of the first citizen of Bayelsa State remains elusive to Alaibe.
