Alamieyeseigha said:

“You should go to all the nooks and crannies of Bayelsa State to sell this good product, Governor Dickson, for another term in office. We cannot afford to be changing our Governors at will.”

“Other states created the same time with us have only had two governors in the last 16 years. But we have had four governors. This does not bring continuity.”
