Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to convene an emergency meeting of the Council of State.

Speaking to newsmen in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, the governor noted that the meeting was needed to discuss issues around the postponement of the general elections and the modalities to ensure credible polls.

He said heads of security agencies and candidates should be part of the meeting.

“I call on President Buhari, in his capacity as the leader to convene an expanded meeting of the National Council of State,” Dickson said.

“The meeting should be attended by the security chiefs, the candidates, and political leaders to examine the issues which could plunge our country into a prolonged constitutional crisis, a crisis of succession if not properly handled.”
