No party can defeat PDP in Bayelsa State - Dickson

The Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, has boasted that only the Peoples Democratic Party will win future elections in the state.

Dickson, therefore, advised the members of other political parties, including those of the All Progressives Congress, to renounce their membership and join the PDP if they had ambitions to contest any future electoral positions in the state.

The governor spoke at the Peace Park, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, on Tuesday, where a crowd of PDP loyalists mobilised to celebrate his fifth year in office as the governor.

Dickson, who danced to Ijaw war songs before addressing the large crowd of supporters, said, “This state is unshakably PDP. Anybody who wants to contest an election, let me put you on notice, the only platform that can win an election in this state under my leadership is the PDP. Which election will be tougher than the one we won with me as the candidate?

“We will lead the party to win all elections in the state, God willing. We have nothing to hide. The doors of the PDP in Bayelsa are open even to those who made mistakes; our big umbrella is waiting to receive all of them back.

“If they don’t come back, no way for elections in the state, tell them. If they come back, accept them.”

Dickson insisted that the PDP would bounce back and regain control of the centre in 2019 after resolving its internal crisis.

He said he had transformed the state and brought development, adding that the people of the state now had the best hospitals, roads and schools under his government.

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
