Former president Goodluck Jonathan was on Wednesday spotted at the launch of the “New Yenagoa City” project in the capital city of Bayelsa state.
The former president was among dignitaries that attended the event – which marked the launch of the Bayelsa state government sponsored project.
The event was held at the Chief DSP Alamieyeseigha Memorial Banquet Hall, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.
