National Coordinator of David Lyon Youths Network, Worldwide, Comr. Ebikeseiye Odibo, alias the political Gbologbegha of Kou Kingdom in Ekeremor Local Government Area of Bayelsa State has stated that the pattern of voting witnessed in the just concluded Bayelsa State Governorship election was revolutionary.
Comr. Odibo made the assertion earlier today in Yenagoa while addressing the press on the state of things in Bayelsa State, adding that Chief David Lyon of the All Progressives Congress, APC is a wise choice that will turn Bayelsa State to the dream land of Ijaw people.
The national coordinator of the David Lyon Youths Network particularly congratulated its Principal, Chief David Lyon, Governor elect, Bayelsa State on his sweeping victory, adding that Bayelsans are pleased with his personality.
Odibo noted that during the election, while the Peoples Democratic Party was splashing cash to hoodwink citizens of the state, Bayelsans in most places, particularly in Ekeremor, Nembe, Southern Ijaw and other local government areas in the state rejected their monetary bids and without collecting a dine from the All Progressives Congress either but massively turned out and voted against the PDP.
According him, such display of bravery can only be the sound of revolution, stressing that Bayelsans were not happy with the way and manner the Governor Seriake led administration handled the state and her people.
“What happened in the just concluded Bayelsa State Governorship election was a situation of registering their annoyance against Governor Dickson, if our leaders must learn a lesson from this, it will really be good for our dear state.
“You can’t become a tyrant to the people for good eight years and expect these people to give you power again to be enslaved, it won’t work that way, at least we have taken a decision for us to move forward as a people and a state.
“We have to move on, we know that our incoming Governor, Chief David Lyon will wipe away our many years of sorrow, suffering, tears and clean up the many political sins of Governor Seriake Dickson.
“Bayelsans really suffered chronically in the hands of Dickson”. Odibo stated.
