Governor says Dickson’s re-election is a victory for democracy

Dickson emerged winner after supplementary elections which held on Saturday, January 9, 2016.

 

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has described the re-election of the Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson as a victory for democracy.

Wike’s comments were contained in a statement released by his Special Assistant on Electronic Media, Simeon Nwakaudu.

“The people of the Niger Delta remain dedicated members of the PDP because that is the only political platform that gives Niger Delta issues the priority they deserve while the others are only interested in the pecuniary benefits which flow from the area,” the governor said.

He also said that the will of Bayelsa people had  prevailed and that the people of the state exhibited the true Niger Delta spirit, which abhors oppression and injustice.
