Why I distanced myself from Diri’s administration, by Dickson


The immediate past Bayelsa Governor Senator Seriake Dickson has denied any rift with his successor, Governor Douye Diri.

Dickson, Senator representing Bayelsa West District, made the declaration in Sagbama on Sunday during a grand reception in honour of leaders from the district by the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He explained that he deliberately maintained a distance from the incumbent administration as he desired to give his successor a respectable distance to operate.
Dickson stressed that he was constantly in touch with Diri, especially on issues bordering on the development of the State.

He recalled with delight how the PDP emerged victorious in the last governorship election and expressed the optimism that the party would continue to win future elections in the state.

The immediate past governor charged party members to shun all forms of division and support the current administration, stressing that the PDP can only be strong when it is united.

He lauded Diri for his developmental strides, saying he was proud of his successor.

He also thanked the people of Bayelsa West for the honour done him and other leaders of the senatorial district and pledged to continue to serve his people diligently.

Diri said the PDP remained the party of choice for Bayelsans and would be difficult to beat in any election in the state.

Diri noted that the party was firmly rooted in the State and had embarked on projects that had endeared it to the people.

The Governor urged the people of Bayelsa West to close ranks in order to consolidate on the party’s achievements.

He thanked them for the honour done him and other leaders of the district and solicited their continuous support, stressing that government alone could not deliver development to the State.
