The former Chairman, said even if elections were to be conducted a thousand times Dickson would still emerge winner.

He said: “As a party we congratulate our amiable governor and his deputy for the sweet victory which did not come to us as a surprise because we knew that with the facts before their lordships the APC had no case against the PDP.

“What the APC and its candidate did was to waste their time and that of the judiciary. Chief Timipre Sylva knew he could not ‎have won that case,” he said.

‎He also hailed the PDP and  Bayelsans who stood by the Dickson’s government, saying their prayers for this victory was not in vain.

He urged them to always support the administration for Bayelsa to move forward.

He, express satisfaction the way the election judgements have been going starting from Tribunal to the Supreme Court.

Osumo, therefore called on all APC faithful to join hands and move Bayelsa forward.
