...says Dickson is The Best Candidate Available for the Top Office

As the countdown to December’s governorship polls begins in Bayelsa State, a former federal parliamentarian, Hon. Graham Ipigansi has urged Bayelsans to be extremely cautious, wise and practical in their choice of personality for the State’s top position.

Hon. Ipigansi, who gave the advise while fielding questions from newsmen in Yenagoa, stated that, his call is informed by the unwarranted and unnecessary spate of defections and cross carpeting among the political class in the state, noting that, most of the defections are purely for selfish and pecuniary reasons.

He called on the people of the State not to be distracted by the actions of this group of politicians, who have lost their self esteem, honour and focus, noting that, Bayelsans must make the clear choice between those who mean well for the State and those who are pursuing their personal objectives and against the over all well being and growth of the State.

Hon. Ipigansi, who represented the Ogbia Federal constituency in the House of Representatives between 1999 and 2003, noted that incumbent Governor Henry Seriake Dickson has distinguished himself through the physical infrastructural to human capital development, like no other Governor in the history of Bayelsa State and deserves a second tenure.

He described Hon. Dickson as one the most patriotic, focused, transparent and result oriented leaders of Baayelsa state, as manifested through his policies, programmes and projects, that are spread across the nooks and crannies of the State.

According to him, only those who have never meant well for Bayelsa State, would find fault in Dickson’s style of governance, which has impacted positively on all sectors of the State’s economy, which has undergone a massive turn around.
While pledging his total support for the Dickson re-election project, the former federal lawmaker called on well meaning and right thinking Bayelsans to rally round the Governor, so that he can continue with his well articulated restoration agenda for the State.
