As the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) commences sale of nomination forms for the 2019 general elections, Bayelsa State Governor, the Honourable Henry Seriake Dickson, has called on all aspirants seeking nominations into offices on the platform of the party “to shun bitterness, violence and rancour and go about their consultations and campaigns with decorum”.
A press statement signed by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Francis Ottah Agbo, quoted the governor as having made the remarks on Wednesday in Toru-Orua, when he received some eminent Bayelsans on a condolence visit over the passing of his mother, Mrs. GoldCoast Dickson.
Dickson said the PDP in Bayelsa State has never been associated with violence and called on politicians to always play by the rules of the party.
He also appealed to aspirants to approach the primary elections with open mind and be willing to accept the decision of the party’s Electoral College in good faith.
While stressing that PDP will conduct a credible congress and primary elections, the governor called on the party leadership in the state “to be fair to all those seeking elective offices before, during and after the exercise”, stressing that it is by so doing that the party will sustain its consolidated popularity in the state.
Hon. Dickson also thanked Bayelsans and Nigerians in general for their support, prayers and outpouring of condolence messages to him and family on the demise of his beloved mother. He said very soon the family will come up with details of the funeral rites.
