Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson has said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will have to wait an eternity to rule the state.

Dickson said this in reaction to a plan by the APC to win the 2016 governorship election in the state.

The governor’s comments were disclosed on Monday, June 22, 2015, via statement released by his media aide, Daniel Iworiso-Markson.

It reads:

“Through prudent management and commitment to the ethos of good governance, that debt today stands at N90 billion. Out of the N440 billion that his government received as allocation from the Federation Account about N242 billion was used to help pay down that debt even as it embarked on an unprecedented level of infrastructural development and socio-economic welfare schemes.”

“This is why the Bayelsa state government considers as very uncharitable the statement attributed to APC Chairman Chief John Odigie-Oyegun that the government has nothing to show for that allocation from the centre.”

“The APC chairman’s posture is highly curious given that he had warned against defections to his party after its victory at the March presidential elections, advising potential defectors to remain in their existing parties and help build a virile opposition in the interest of the development of the nation’s democracy. So why is the APC now welcoming the sudden influx of power prostitutes and fair weather politicians who spin cock and bull stories into its fold?”

 “Chief Oyegun should kindly leave the Bayelsa State government out of its (his party’s) growing confusion.”

 Bayelsa is the home state of former President, Goodluck Jonathan.
