Former President Goodluck Jonathan, former Governor of Bayelsa State, Chief D.S.P. Alamieyeseigha, Ijaw leaders and other political heavyweights from the South-South geo-political zone are among dignitaries that will attend the September 8 declaration of Bayelsa State Governor, Henry Seriake Dickson.

Others expected at the event include the national leadership of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), all PDP governors and former First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan.

Already, the ex-first lady has announced her decision to reconcile with Dickson and had directed all her loyalists in to work selflessly for the PDP and ensure his re-election.

A statement issued on Wednesday in Yenagoa Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, explained that Dickson is seeking re-election based on his achievements and track records.

“His Excellency, country man governor, came into office as a reformer with a bold vision encapsulated in the restoration agenda as a springboard of a paradigm shift in all areas of governance in the state.”
