Niger Delta group hails Sen Dickson’s exemplary leadership

THE Niger-Delta Renaissance Network has frowned at the unfounded propaganda and misinformation on the former Governor of Bayelsa State, Senator Henry Seriake Dickson, interfering in the adminstration of his successor, Governor Douye Diri, as completely untrue.

“We are shocked about a television programme where a commentator, one Chuks Akunna, was making insinuations about Senator Dickson interfering in the running of Bayelsa State. We refute these allegations as untrue because we have been following the efforts of Senator Dickson in sustaining peace in Bayelsa, and the restraint and tolerance he has shown over the years, which has been applauded by all”, Comrade Gabriel Aniete, spokesman of the group, said in response to the television commentator, whom he insisted, ‘made a false, clearly malicious, and unverified claims’.

“Sen. Dickson gained our attention with the unique management of the transition in Bayelsa which many politicians are recommending for other States to avoid the situation in Rivers State, and other such States,” Comrade Aniete said.

“If the commentator had taken the pains to inquire about the true state of affairs in Bayelsa, he would have found out about the laudable Bayelsa transition, which continues to draw commendations as the model for relationships between Governors and their predecessors.

“To re-affirm our position, only last December, Governor Diri affirmed that the relationship he has with Senator Dickson is unique and could not be broken. Many newspapers reported the statement. Some examples will suffice:
