Abuja -  Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, has assured residents of security of lives and property during the re-run election scheduled for next weekend.

These will be held in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area on January 9.

"I will continue to play my role as Governor to always acquaint you of the security concerns in the State and our position as a government in dealing with these (security) concerns," Dickson said.

"As a government, we will continue to do our best to ensure that lives and properties are secured and all those perpetrating this evil are brought to book,” he added.

The governor pointed out the terror allegedly unleashed on Southern Ijaw people by the All Progressives Congress during the poll held on December 5.

“I met with my people who at the time were angry to console and reassure them. They were humiliated, harassed, wounded and de-enfranchised. Some lost their lives."

He assured there would be no recurrence.
