Seriake Dickson In Hot Soup

Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State is in trouble as the All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to investigate his government over alleged diversion of N17.5 billion.

The party’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Yekini Nabena, said;

“In the last two weeks, the Bayelsa State Government has, in highly suspicious circumstances, made several withdrawals to the tune of N17.5 billion without any corresponding project to justify such withdrawals.”

“The insider reports we received stated that Gov. Seriake Dickson approved the illegal withdrawals to fund the election of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in the state.”

“The EFCC and the NFIU must urgently freeze the state government accounts to stop further illegal withdrawals.”

“The anti-graft agencies must also track down the already withdrawn N17.5 billion and arrest the state Commissioner for Finance, Mr Maxwell Ebibai, who oversaw the illegal withdrawals.”

“Our sources reported that some of the cash are stashed in the governor’s Toru-Orua country home.”

“Others have been laundered by the commissioner through the Bayelsa Development and Investment Corporation (BDIC).”

“It is now clear that Gov. Dickson is using the federal allocation meant for the people of Bayelsa to fund the election of PDP governorship candidate.”
