Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State has once more boasted that the All Progressives Congress, APC cannot win elections in the state.
He alleged that the APC in Bayelsa “is a party harbouring, protecting and arming criminals to kill innocent citizens, hence it can never be entrusted with the people’s mandate.”
The governor made the assertion in the Government House, Yenagoa, during the inauguration of six new Special Advisers, a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Francis Agbo, said on Wednesday.
Top among those sworn in by the governor were Guy Murray-Bruce, who was assigned Special Adviser, Entertainment and Tourism Development and a former lawmaker and APC chief, Ayiba Duba, who took charge as Special Adviser Political Matters (II).
Dickson noted that the PDP, through the restoration government under his watch, had transformed the landscape of Bayelsa and provided credible leadership to the people.
While congratulating Duba for defecting from the APC to the PDP, the governor called on a few other good people who had seen the deceit, emptiness and criminality in the ruling APC to return to the PDP.”
The governor also inaugurated the Teacher Training, Registration and Certification Board, stressing that henceforth, all public and private school teachers would undergo training, retraining and certification by the board as part of quality control measures.
He also applauded Murray-Bruce for his achievements in the entertainment industry.
He urged him to bring his wealth of experience to bear on the state with the view to making Bayelsa a tourism and entertainment hub in the country.
Dickson said, “ I have said it again and again that the APC cannot win any election in this state. Bayelsa remains a stronghold of the PDP. The people of Bayelsa know what the PDP is doing for them in terms of leadership and development.
“So they will not allow themselves to be deceived by the other party that has clearly shown to Nigerians they do not have anything to offer this country.”
