Adding that “I am not expecting the governor to score 100 per cent. There are three key parameters I will like to score Dickson, which are payment of salaries, physical infrastructure and low indebtedness of the state in terms of bank loans and in the capital market."

The former President also said “If you compare what has happened in other parts of the country, you will praise Dickson. People should think more of about the way the state is being run and prepare for our future generation."

“Bayelsa is not a cursed state. On the notion that governors in Bayelsa cannot do eight years, it slows down development and except there is continuation in government, development will be truncated. Performance is not about satisfying individual needs and so we need to encourage Governor Dickson to go for second term.”
