Former Nigeria Ambassador to the Ivory Coast and member of the pioneer old Rivers State Executive Council, Professor Lawrence Ekpebu has condemned political detractors, who hell bent fanning the embers of mischief by holding nocturnal meetings to shop for candidates to unseat the present Bayelsa State administration under the leadership of Governor Henry Seriake Dickson.

Professor Ekpebu, who made the condemnation in an interview with the political desk of a National daily pointed out that, such moves were detrimental to the development of the State, stressing that, the regrettable situation, where no governor has served or completed two terms in the State does not augur well for the stability and continuation of projects in the State.

He commended Governor Dickson for his development strides, argued that, to change any government at this time would be dysfunctional to the stability of the State and should be jettisoned by those who are making such moves.

“To change any government at this time is dysfunctional to the stability of Bayelsa State”
Professor Ekpebu, who is also the Chairman of the Management Board of the Bayelsa Development and Investment Corporation, BDIC, noted that, Governor Dickson has done well and deserves a second term in office to enable him continue with his development efforts in the construction of the three senatorial roads,bridges, other basic infrastructure as well as other human capital development and massive industrialization of the State.

According to him, well meaning Bayelsans should instead of wanting to unseat the Governor, come together and mobilize support for the governor, who has remained focused in the implementation of his developmental agenda for the State, despite the devastating effects of dwindling resources to the three tiers of government in the Country.
