12 January 2016, 07:36Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Days after his re-election as Bayelsa State governor, Seriake Dickson has reached out to rivals to partner with him and develop the state.

He said they were only opponents only during the electoral process but the development of the state was foremost.

“The campaigns are over and my message to all is that the elections have been won and lost but there is no vanquish," said Dickson.

"I hereby call on all the political candidates to collaborate and partner with us to make Bayelsa secure, fight insecurity and crime and criminality thereby continue to spread development and prosperity."

He assured the state government is ready to work with all partners in its restoration ideals.

The governor appreciated the people of the state for the massive resounding confidence repose in his team and dedicated the victory to them.

"They have voted for consolidation of restoration, development and security. This is not a personal victory for me but rather a victory for Bayelsa State."

The All Progressives Congress has rejected the victory of the People's Democratic Party candidate following elections that were marred by violence.
