Governor of Bayelsa State, Seriake Dickson, has inaugurated a 13- member Restoration Campaign Organisation, with a charge to bring their wealth of experience to bear on the job, ahead of the 5th of December, 2015 gubernatorial election. He gave that charge during the commissioning of the campaign office and inauguration of members of the organisation at Yenizue-Gene in Yenagoa and assured them of his support, adding that, they are campaign directors in their different localities. He pointed out that, the members were carefully selected, based on their pedigree and consultation with leaders and elders of the party, describing them as political juggernauts and tested tacticians in their own rights.
Emphasizing on the task ahead, Governor Dickson stressed that, the government is not playing with the campaign, as it is about the integrity and dignity of the state. “The government will stand with you, be with you as you use your wealth of experience to bear on the job of restoration because your families have donated you to the course of restoration. You were carefully selected after consultation with leaders and elders of the party. The state is not playing about the campaign, as it is about the integrity and dignity of the state and the Ijaw nation.”
Speaking in the same vein, the former governor of the state, Chief Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, harped on the need for the newly inaugurated members to be united, dogged, determined and courageous. He pointed out that, none of the political parties have any agenda for the Ijaw nation, adding that, the team is formidable with experienced people to win the forthcoming political battle.
In his acceptance speech, the Director-General of the Restoration Campaign Organisation and member of the House of Representatives, Fred Agbedi, promised that members will not disappoint in the discharge of their duties effectively. While commending Governor Dickson for the opportunity given them to serve, he said they will be at the beck and call of the restoration team to ensure total victory for the PDP at the gubernatorial polls.
