Gov. Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa has been challenged to explain reason for 23 months unpaid salary of lecturers in the state-owned Niger Delta University, Amasoma, Bayelsa.

All Progressives Congress Youth League in the state made the demand in a statement signed by its leader, Mr. Domor Mienye, and issued in Yenagoa on Friday.
