Bayelsa State Governor, Henry Seriake Dickson on Tuesday said that the ongoing crisis in the state chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) portends grave danger to the democratic fortunes already established in the state. 

Governor Dickson stated this during the inauguration of of 8 new Special Advisers and the General Manager of the Bayelsa State Transport Company, Hon. Emomotimi Fanama in Yenagoa.

The new Special Advisers are Deacon James Dugo, Chief Bernard Agai, Chief Patrick Osunu, Hon. Agatha Goma, Hon. Ayobegha James, Mr. Alex Dumbo, Chief Kienyosuote Degi and Henry Orumieyefa.

According to him, the inability of the APC to properly coordinate its activities has confirmed his earlier position that those opposing the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP do not have the interest of the people at heart.

Dickson, who restated his call on those who defected from the PDP to return, maintained that, the PDP would serve their interests better rather than remain in a party to be treated as strangers.

While congratulating the new appointees, he described them as high caliber people, who have been tried and tested in various political capacities.

Dickson urged them to strengthen their contacts with the people, especially as the gubernatorial election approaches.

He re-assured Bayelsans of the restoration government’s commitment to working for the greater peace, stability and sustainable development of the state.
