The party also faulted the Federal Government’s handling of the economy, adding that the poor policies have rendered states incapable of paying salaries.

The PDP in Bayelsa alleged that the government sidelined the state in the Ambassadorial nomination, because of the grudge it has against the state.

Punch reports that the Bayelsa PDP chairman, Cleopas Moses said “The Federal Government does not mean well for our state. Out of  47 ambassador-nominees,  the government did not consider Bayelsa indigenes as good enough for one, even Permanent Secretary. Nothing has come to us. ”
