Bayelsa State Governor, Henry Seriake Dickson, has been given kudos for providing the right political space for youths to excel in the just concluded primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The Governor’s Senior Special Assistant on Youths in Ogbia, Osaanya B. Osaanya, gave him the commendation following the discovery that some of those who emerged victorious in the primaries are of youthful age.

He said across the three senatorial zones, a good number of those who won the party’s ticket to contest for House of Assembly are below 40 years, noting that it wouldn’t have happened if not for Governor Dickson's love for the youths in the state.

Osaanya listed some of them to include, Tare Porri, Munalayefa Gibson, Oforji Oboku and Felix Bonny-Ayah, as among the very young people who were given the opportunity to contest and win the PDP ticket for their constituencies.

He expressed optimism that when elected they will bring the vibrancy and dynamism they have over the years learnt from Governor Dickson’s political tutelage to bear and charged them not to disappoint.

The youth leader in Ogbia maintained that the next legislative year in the state assembly will be very interesting with the crop of young people that will take over and called on Bayelsans, especially members of the PDP to overwhelmingly turn out and elect the emerging leaders.

While commending Governor Dickson for the opportunity, Osaanya stated that several other young people like the Commissioner for Environment, Ebipatei Apaingolo, and the chairman of Brass Local Government Caretaker Committee, Victor Isaiah, are good examples of the generational shift of power in Bayelsa.

Osaanya assured the governor that Ogbia youths will continue to stand by his administration and support him to finish well and strong, saying despite a few bad eggs, the youths of Ogbia are fully with him because of what he has done for them over the years.
