Jonathan arrives Bayelsa to vote amid tight security
President Goodluck Jonathan on Friday arrived at his Otuoke country home in Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa State amid tight security so as to vote in today's presidential election.
There was also tight security in neighbouring towns.
Military personnel, police operatives and other security agents were seen going round the President's hometown.
Jonathan will be casting his vote at a polling unit near his palatial country home.
He usually casts his vote at Ward 13 in Otuoke.
Prior to his arrival, two Armoured Personnel Carriers were seen on the Otuoke Road. One was stationed in front of the President's house.
The other was parked in front of Magels Resort, a hotel close to a commercial bank.
Earlier, a helicopter was seen hovering around the town, apparently on security surveillance.
Soldiers and policemen were also seen on the main Otuoke Road.
The president arrived at about 3pm in company of the Bayelsa State Governor, Mr. Seriake Dickson, and other aides. Before his arrival, an army of women supporters had waited for him in Yenagoa, the state capital.
But Jonathan was said to have gone straight to Otuoke from the Port Harcourt International Airport.
