Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State has been taken to the cleaners by Adams Oshiomhole, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He said; “APC rejects and condemn in strong term the raw language unbecoming of the office of a governor, the way he has described our candidate.”
“We will not go to his own level. on this occasion, we will invoke a popular statement made by Michelle Obama at the peak of the last presidential election in US when she said when they go low, we fly high.”
“So when Dickson goes low, we will fly high. We will not join him in using gutter language to describe neither his office or his person, or even their candidate who is about to be defeated.”
“I also want to appeal to APC governorship candidate in the state, David Lyon not to join political opponents to engage in hate speech. They will provoke you to divert from your path to distract your attention and you will be busy attacking them.”
“What you need is to pass your message of change to the people of Bayelsa.”
“When they concentrate on abusing you, you concentrate in mobilising the people, amplifying what they would have gotten by now which they have lost because of the leadership qualities they are lacking.”
