I left govt house fulfilled — Former Gov Dickson
The immediate past governor of Bayelsa State, Honourable Henry Seriake Dickson, has said that he left the Creek Haven Government House, Yenagoa, a fulfilled man.
The former governor said in a statement by his media aide, Mr Fidelis Soriwei, that it was to the glory of God that he left Government House in a blaze of glory in spite of the shocking array of political forces who turned against him despite the assistance he rendered to them.
He lamented that the security of Bayelsa was outsourced to criminal elements who unleashed an orgy of violence on the state since 2015.
He recalled that the thugs of the All Progressives Congress killed 21 people in Nembe Local Government Area of Bayelsa State without the expected concern and condemnation from the Federal Government.
He added that even when the election results were announced against the Peoples Democratic Party, there was no violence in consonance with his politics without bitterness or violence.
He lamented that the thugs of the APC destroyed properties in Yenagoa, including the vandalisation of the residence at Opolo and destruction of properties worth millions of naira in response to the Supreme Court Judgment.
He said, “When we were ready for the transition, I called the whole state to pray and fast and we prayed and fasted and I considered a lot of things, I consulted and took decisions.”
