Bayelsa State governor, Mr Seriake Dickson, has said that he will work closely with other governors of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, towards ensuring victory in the re-scheduled State and National Assembly elections in their states.
Dickson, in statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Daniel Iworiso-Markson, gave the assurance, Sunday, at a reception which followed a thanksgiving service held in honour of the Rivers State governor, Chief Nyesome Wike, in Port Harcourt, over his recent victory at the Supreme Court. He said that as the oldest PDP governor in the South-South geo-political zone, it was incumbent on him to play a pivotal role in efforts geared towards strengthening the party’s existing structures at both regional and national levels. Congratulating Wike and his deputy, Dr. Ipalibo Harry-Banigo, for their victory, Dickson said that whatever affects Rivers State has a ripple effect on Bayelsa State because both states share common history and cultural affinity. He, therefore, urged the people not to allow any issue to divide them, but remain united and work for the peace, progress and stability of the region. Dickson, who extended a hand of fellowship to the Rivers people, advised them to rally round their governor to enable him focus on delivering the dividends of democracy, particularly as the country was grappling with dire economic challenges.
