Group hails Dickson as best-performing governor

16 September 2015, 17:24

Bayelsa - An influential organisation in the Niger Delta has endorsed the re-election of Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson.

Ahead of the December 5 election, the  Niger Delta Patriotic Coalition (NDPC) argued retaining the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) politician would ensure continuity.

Godknows Okauru, the leader of the organisation, said during his tenure Dickson had ensured accountability and transparency in the management of resources that had been allocated to him in recent times.

He argued the governor had been with prudent management and application without waste.

“He has shown zero tolerance for corruption since assumption of office,” said Okauru.

“Dickson is the most performing Governor since the advent of democracy in the entire Niger Delta region. As a result his performance is already speaking for him,” he added.

Okauru thus called on the electorate to retain Dickson.

“Any attempt to replace him may truncate the projects which have made Bayelsa the talk of the Niger Delta And also set the state back so many years.”

Dickson assumed his role as governor of Bayelsa State in 2012, succeeding party colleague, Timpre Sylva, now a party leader of the rival All Progressives Congress in the state.
