Former governor of Bayelsa state, Timipre Sylva, has declared that Governor Seriake Dickson ”is sick”. This is contained in a strongly worded statement his media aide, Doefie Buokoribo, sent to DAILY POST Friday morning. Sylva’s outburst is in reaction to Dickson’s call on President Muhammadu Buhari to prevail on the Minister of State for Agriculture, Senator Heineken Lokpobiri, and Sylva, to stop sponsoring killings and destabilizing peace in the state. The Governor also appealed to Buhari to prevail on his party leaders to stop aiding criminals and their harmful activities in the state.
Dickson accused them of conniving with some elements in Abuja to sponsor activities against the peace, security, stability and development of Bayelsa. But Sylva, leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, lambasted Dickson for his false alarm. ”Governor Henry Seriake Dickson is at it again. He has returned to his notorious game of accusing the former governor, Chief Timipre Sylva, of sponsoring criminality in Bayelsa State”, his statement read.
