GOV DICKSON URGES BAYELSANS TO KEEP FAITH WITH PDP…. WANTS PEOPLE TO VOTE MASSIVELY FOR PARTY IN STATE ASSEMBLY POLLS
Arising from a crucial meeting with key political stakeholders in the State in Yenagoa, yesterday, Governor Henry Seriake Dickson has urged Bayelsans to keep faith with the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, stressing that, the State remains key to the party.
Describing Bayelsa as a traditional home and stronghold of the party, from the advent of the present democratic dispensation in 1999, he stated that, the people of the State, especially the political class owes the party a duty to remain loyal and committed to its principles, goals and ideals, which have become a part of the body polity of the State.
According to him, as one of the major beneficiaries of the party, in the time past, it becomes even more expedient for the people to remain resolute in their support for every programme of the PDP, with the Governorship and State House of Assembly elections still to come, stressing that, Bayelsa cannot afford to sit on the fence now, but maintain its ever relevant and dominant posture in the affairs of the party.
He used the occasion to renew his call on every Bayelsan, who truly loves and wishes the State well, to turn out en masse and vote massively for all PDP candidates in next weekend’s State House of Assembly polls, as that will effectively signal the place of Bayelsa, as a dependable force in a post presidential election PDP, as well as maintain the confidence reposed in the State by the party hierarchy at the National level.
