Yenagoa - The candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the December 5 governorship election in Bayelsa State, Timipre Sylva, has asked Governor Seriake Dickson to begin to pack his belongings and get ready to quit the Government House, reports Punch.

Sylva said the people of the state would vote out Dickson, who is the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the election, because of his anti-people policies and programmes, which he described as wicked and painful.
