Bayelsa Decides: Gov Dickson Makes Fresh Allegation Against APC Candidates
Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State has accused the candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC), David Lyon and Degi, of been cultists and criminals.
He made the accusation during the official inauguration of the gubernatorial campaign teams and secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday, in Yenagoa.
Naija News reports that the Bayelsa Governorship election is scheduled to hold on the 16th of November, 2019.
Speaking at the inauguration, Dickson accused the Muhammadu Buhari administration of doing nothing after five years in power.
He said the APC wants to promote violence in different communities in Bayelsa State.
“Consider what would happen if things were to happen otherwise, none of you will spend a week in Bayelsa State. APC is presenting a ticket of militancy, terrorism, cultism and criminality, it’s going to be a government of criminals and cultist,” the governor said.
“Democracy in Bayelsa State can never turn to a government of militancy and criminals.
“As we are formally inaugurating the campaigns, we will also launch “Operation wind APC in Bayelsa.”
“The consequence are (SIC) too dare to imagine, people will be scared to visit the state, even indigenes will be scared to visit their communities,” he added.
Governor Dickson said the upcoming election in the state was not about the candidates but about the future of the state and its children.
“In 2015, when I was contesting, I saw more than the defection we are seeing today but let me assure us of victory.
“And don’t be perturbed but that doesn’t mean that we are happy as party leaders are decamping but victory will be ours at the end,” he added.
