“Chief Alamieyeseigha was a true democrat; humble leader, brilliant administrator who had extraordinary love for his people. He was an outstanding party-man, who, despite his travails, remained loyal to the PDP at state and national levels to the very end,” added Secondus.

He said the opposition party sincerely commiserated with Governor Seriake Dickson, the Alamieyeseigha family, the Ijaw kingdom and the people of Bayelsa State and prayed God to give them the fortitude to bear this loss.

He was governor from May 1999 to December 2005.

“The party is still in shock over the news of the sudden death of the former governor,” said Secondus. – CAJ News
