Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State has described the candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief David Lyon and his running mate, Senator Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo, for the November 16 Governorship election in the state, as a representation of militancy, terrorism, cultism, and criminality.
He emphasized that the APC government after five years at the federal level has done nothing in the state but to promote violence in different communities, adding that the consequences of losing the election to the APC in the state will be dare to imagine.
Governor Dickson made the revelation during the official inauguration of the gubernatorial campaign teams and secretariat on Tuesday, in Yenagoa.
He said, “Consider what would happen if things were to happen otherwise, none of you will spend a week in Bayelsa State. APC is presenting a ticket of militancy, terrorism, cultism, and criminality, it’s going to be a government of criminals and cultists.”
Democracy in Bayelsa State can never turn to a government of militancy and criminals.
As we are formally inaugurating the campaigns, we will also launch “Operation wind APC in Bayelsa.”
“The consequences are too dare to imagine, people will be scared to visit the state, even indigenes will be scared to visit their communities.
“If we don’t take this election seriously, by 17th the day after the election we should be ready to leave the state. This election is not about the candidate or even me but about the future of our state and our children.
“In 2015, when I was contesting, I saw more than the defection we are seeing today but let me assure us of victory. And don’t be perturbed but that doesn’t mean that we are happy as party leaders are decamping but victory will be ours at the end.”
