Former Governor of Bayelsa State and Senator representing Bayelsa West Senatorial District, Senator Seriake Dickson has congratulated the Governor of Bayelsa State, Senator Douye Diri and the Deputy Governor, Senator Lawrence Ewhrudjapko on their one year anniversary.
The former governor extended his felicitations via his social media handle.
The great white shark, as he is fondly called, commended Governor Diri for completing and commissioning some projects initiated by his administration while in office and also embarking on new initiatives.
He called on all Bayelsans to put away party differences and support the governor of the state.
He equally called on all political gladiators in the state to shelve their individual political ambitions and support his successor, saying that this is not the time for politics but time to build legacies.
It will be recalled that Governor Diri was declared Governor elect on February 13, 2020 following a judgment by the Supreme Court sacking the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief David Lyon, whom the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared as winner of the governorship election in the state.
