Dickson’s re-election is a victory for democracy – Wike


BAYELSADECIDESRivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared that the re-election of the Bayelsa State Governor, Rt. Hon. Seriake Dickson is a victory  for  democracy  in the face of unrelenting external forces. In a congratulatory message to the Bayelsa State Governor, following  his re-election  at the conclusion  of  the  supplementary governorship  election,  Governor Wike  said  that  the  will of the  people  of  Bayelsa State has prevailed as they have resolved  to remain with the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

A statement issued by  the Governor’s Special Assistant on Electronic Media, Simeon Nwakaudu,  pointed out  that  the  people  of  Bayelsa State exhibited the true Niger Delta  spirit which abhors oppression and injustice.  He said  that with the re-election  of Governor Seriake Dickson,  a clear message  has been  sent to the dark forces of rigging  and electoral manipulation  that they will never find accommodation  in this geo-political zone.
Governor Wike specifically  commended the good people  of  Bayelsa State for being vigilant all through  the governorship election process, saying  that their hard work and dedication  to  the  enthronement of democracy have been rewarded by the re-election  of a true Niger Delta  patriot.
The governor stated that the people of the Niger Delta remain dedicated  members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, because  that is the only political  platform  that gives Niger Delta issues the priority they deserve,  while the others are only interested in the  pecuniary benefits  which flow from the area.
While rejoicing  with Governor Dickson,  the Rivers State Governor expressed confidence  in  the  ability  of  the  Bayelsa State Governor to consolidate  on the democracy dividends which he availed the Bayelsa people during his first term.
