Gov. Dickson urges Bayelsa senators to support Buhari’s Bayelsa ministerial nominee

Bayelsa governor, Seriake Dickson, has asked lawmakers from the state to support the nomination of Heineken Lokpobiri as a minister by President Muhammadu Buhari and ensure that he is cleared.

Lokpobiri was previously a member of the Peoples Democratic Party but defected to the All Progressives Congress after the general elections, refusing to support the second term ambition of Dickson.

Dickson however told the national assembly members who paid a condolence visit to him in Government House, Yenagoa, over the demise of Chief Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, former Governor of the state, that they should commit themselves to the unity and progress of the state.

Governor Dickson stressed that the development of Bayelsa was paramount, regardless of party affiliations or personal interest, expressing his resolve to collaborate with representatives of the state at the national level towards accelerating the pace of development.
