Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has congratulated Governor Seriake Dickson on his victory in the protracted governorship election in Bayelsa State.
Reacting to the final outcome of the polls, Senator Ekweremadu said Dickson’s re-election against all odds was expected given that Bayelsa State had witnessed splendid transformation under his government.
“It is a sweet victory, coming against all odds. It is a testimony to the performance and popularity of Governor Seriake Dickson and our great party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
“I commend the people of Bayelsa State for standing up to be counted, for protecting their democratic rights to freely choose their leaders. They have made a resounding statement to the effect that the state remains a PDP enclave and that they are committed to keeping it so.”
He, however, charged Dickson to repay Bayelsans for their faith in the PDP and his leadership credentials with greater transformation in his second term.
He also enjoined him to reach out to his opponents for the peace and progress of Bayelsa, while ensuring that every part of the state is fairly treated irrespective of their political choices.
