Former Senate President, Senator David Mark has said that the first civilian governor of Bayelsa State, Chief D.S.P. Alamieyeseigha, who died on Saturday, left an indelible mark as colossus
Mark stated this in a message of condolence sent to the government and people of Bayelsa State over the demise of the former governor.
The former senate president, in the message made available to newsmen in Abuja, lamented the untimely death of Alamieyeseigha whom he described as an astute politician and a founding member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Mark noted in the message signed by his Media Assistant, Paul Mumeh that though Alamieyeseigha had not too rosy political career judging from his travails, he nonetheless left an indelible mark as a political colossus.
According to him, “DSP Alamieyeseigha was a man who identified with his people. He was in more than equal proportion loved by his people. No wonder he was crowned as the Governor- General of Ijaw nation”.
He added that although Alamieyeseigha had a brief stint as a governor, his legacies cannot be diminished, pointing out that he laid the foundation upon which successive administrations in the state built on.
He therefore sympathised with the immediate family, the people of Bayelsa state, the Ijaw nation and Nigerians at large for the sad loss, saying “he played his part with great passion and commitment”.
