Gov. Dickson Opens Up On PDP Crisis

Gov. Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State has finally bared his mind on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) crisis: “My attention has been drawn to a series of half truths and litany of lies being peddled by some leaders, stakeholders and members of our party, the PDP, following the recent submission of the report of the reconciliation committee which I chaired.”

“In my usual character, I am not disposed to taking issue with anyone or group, especially on a matter that I think could be settled internally, more so, when some of the key actors are not sincerely committed to bringing an end to the festering crisis that has set us back as a party.”

“Firstly, let me state in clear terms that the ongoing blame game, name-calling and propaganda will not, in any way, help us. Rather, we are by such actions demarketing ourselves and playing into the hands of the opposition which appears to be the major beneficiary of the crisis rocking our party. What we should be doing now is to look for an amicable solution and rally ourselves and form a bond like never before since the Independent National Electoral Commission had released the timetable for the 2019 general election.”
