Governor Serikae Dickson has told the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole that he would soon be disappointed when he gets to know who the party chose as its governorship candidate for Bayelsa State.
Oshiomhole had recently flayed Governor Dickson who he described as his friend for using uncouth language to describe the character of Mr. David Lyon, the APC candidate in Bayelsa.
But responding to Oshiomhole, Governor Dickson in a session with newsmen in Lagos on Saturday said:
“My good friend Oshiomhole knows that the APC cannot win Bayelsa in a free and fair election. They can’t win any ward in Bayelsa. None. They have never won any election except intimidating people, manipulating electoral body. He knows that.
“He is my good friend. I disagree with his views. I believe he doesn’t know his candidate enough. But in the coming days and weeks, I believe he will get to know the person he has allowed to be the flag bearer.
“Since 2015, we have been dealing with extreme violence and abuse of power by the leadership of the party that has the centre. We expect that the elections would not be as violent as the previous ones.
“The people of Bayelsa can be trusted to vote for a candidate they believe has the experience, a candidate that they believe understands the issues, a candidate that will continue with the massive development that has come to stay in Bayelsa.”
