………says they are internally grateful for his uncommon transformation in Bayelsa State
Tarakiri Youths Forum, A concerned youth group in Tarakiri Kingdom, has endorsed immediate past Bayelsa state Governor Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson for Senate in the forthcoming Senatorial bye-election.
The coordinator of the group Hon. Ebikebina Akpe addressing newsmen after having three hours closeddoor meeting with the various coordinators representing the various communities in Tarakiri kingdom in Sagbama said it was not only impressing it upon Dickson to contest the seat vacated by the new Deputy Governor Lawrence Ewrujakpo, but also calling on all Bayelsans and those who have the interest of the Ijaw Nation at heart, to support and massively vote for the candidacy of the former governor, as he is clearly the best man for the job.
“We have x-rayed the many aspirants who have indicated their interest to represent the Bayelsa West senatorial district and have taken the pain to evaluate each and everyone of these aspirants, their background, educational qualifications and political persuasions, as well as their belief in Niger Delta Ijaw struggle”, and arrived at the conclusion that Dickson is the most qualified to represent both the senatorial zone and the Ijaw nation at this point in time.
“What placed Dickson heads and shoulders above other aspirants is not only because he has experience as a former member of the House of Representatives, but also stands out as a result of his sterling performance as a two-term governor of Bayelsa state.”
Akpe further said that “It is our considered submission that the people of Sagbama/Ekeremor federal constituency should see his selection beyond party lines, and a further call to duty, and one which is seen as an Ijaw project critical tour collective goal as a people”,
“We believe in Hon. Dickson. We are eternally grateful for the uncommon transformation in Bayelsa State and the developmental strides taken under your governorship. We support you without reservation,” Akpe added.
