God will determine my successor, says Dickson

Simon Utebor, Yenagoa

Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State has said that it is only the Almighty God that will determine the next governor of the state in 2020.

Dickson said that God would raise a leader with a heart for the people to pilot the affairs of the state and to build on the legacy of development established by his administration.

A statement by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media Relations, Mr. Fidelis Soriwei, quoted the governor to have made the statement on Sunday at the St. Andrews Anglican (Ijaw) Church, Apapa, Lagos.

The governor stressed that all Bayelsans and indeed Ijaw people would support such a leader in the task of ensuring continuity in the development of the state after the expiration of his tenure in 2020.

He added that all revenues received by the state must be judiciously utilised to carry out projects that would benefit the people of the state.

Dickson said that his administration had worked assiduously to change the developmental landscape of Bayelsa with the provision of best public schools and health institutions in the country.

He said, “The Niger Delta is a difficult terrain; people have said it is a muddy place but that is where God chose to put the oil.

“We are battling to build hospitals in that terrain; we are battling to build very good public schools, health facilities which are the best among public facilities in this country.

“We are building roads and constructing bridges to Ekeremor and other parts of the state. You must join us to enlighten our people because every money going into Bayelsa must be utilised for the general good of the state.”
