Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, has derided some politicians over their predictions that Nigeria would be a history in 2015, advising those he called “the prophets of doom,” to desist from fanning the embers of discord and acrimony through their unpatriotic utterances.
The governor who spoke through his deputy, Rear Admiral John Jonah (rtd) at the grand finale of this year’s Armed Forces Remembrance Day Celebration, described the position of such politicians as satanic.
He said despite the current challenges confronting the country, the people would continue to remain resilient and united, insisting that the nation would continue to remain indivisible.
“It is imperative for me to use this unique opportunity to remind the retired officers and men of the armed forces, that in spite of the fact that you have been retired from active service, some of you are still active enough to render useful services particularly in the area of maintaining peace and security in our various communities.”
He said there would be no meaningful development in the country in an atmosphere devoid of peace, security and stability.
