Bayelsa State Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) has called on its members to shun any act capable of robbing the party of victory in the governorship election slated for November 2, 2019.
The party during an expanded State Executive Council, SEC, meeting which had in attendance Governor Seriake Dickson and other party chieftains, described the coming election as an isolated one and that all hands must be on deck at ensuring that it records a landslide victory.
Dickson said, “There are two systems that will clash again in this governorship election. The state system which I lead with our teaming supporters and the federal system that will be deployed in this election. As a result, the old way of playing politics must change.
“Bayelsa is a stronghold of PDP. We are going to prove that again with our voters’ cards in the forthcoming governorship election. We cannot be intimidated by the heavy presence of security operatives and political thugs. They had failed in the past. They will fail again this time around.”
“Appointments will be made at the grassroots level as a way of rewarding those who worked for the party’s success, as the chairmen and members of the 32 Rural Development Authorities will soon be constituted.
“We have been running our state as one and I hope people coming after us will work together in peace. I appreciate everybody’s contribution. We together created a new Bayelsa and a new leadership style so that we can bring stability and development.”
Expressing appreciation to party leaders and members for their unwavering dedication and support to his leadership and the party, he attributed their loyalty to the peace stability and development achieved since 2012.
