The Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, has boasted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) can’t win elections in the state.
Dickson said APC can’t be entrusted with the people’s mandate because the party was harbouring, protecting and arming criminals to kill innocent citizens.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Francis Ottah Agbo, the governor insisted that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was doing well in the state.
He said PDP through the restoration government under his watch had transformed the landscape of Bayelsa and provided credible leadership to the people.
Dickson said, “I’ve said it again and again, that the APC cannot win any elections 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 parties that have clearly shown Nigerians they do not have anything to offer the country. APC in Bayelsa harbours, protects and arms criminals to maim and kill innocent Bayelsans. It is the same criminals who move about freely with police protection and Bayelsans know them.
“Election is not about terrorising people; it is not about using security to threaten and hound the electorate. Duba, you were deceived, but, now, that you have seen the difference and returned home to PDP, I expect you to join hands with government in bringing about more development, which only the PDP has the capacity to provide for our people.
“I also urge you to tell the few others, who are still in the APC, to cross over to the PDP fold, as our umbrella is big enough to accommodate every good Bayelsan.”
