Edwin Clark Endorses Seriake Dickson For Bayelsa West Senatorial District by AnonPoet: 3:17pm On Jun 29
Ijaw National Leader, Chief Edwin Clark, has endorsed the immediate past Governor of Bayelsa State, His Excellency, Chief Henry Seriake Dickson, for the vacant Bayelsa West Senatorial District.

The Media Advisor to the former Governor, Mr Fidelis Soriwei, also quoted the foremost Ijaw National Leader as having called on Ijaw leaders across the country to support the ex-Governor for the vacant Senatorial slot in the collective interest of the Ijaw nation and the Niger Delta.

Pa Clark said that Bayelsa and indeed the Ijaw nation was seriously in need of men of demonstrable character, courage, capacity and knowledge like Dickson to run for Senate. He said that the former Governor possesses vast experience in leadership, the political network, and the requisite knowledge to effectively tackle the critical issues of interest to the Ijaw nation such as Resource Control, True Federalism, Restructuring, Power Devolution among others.

The Elder Statesman said that Dickson should be backed for the Senatorial slot as his antecedents have rightly portrayed him as a man of immense courage, integrity and honour who has never for once succumbed to intimidation of whatever form.

Pa Clark stressed that Dickson was well equipped and prepared to defend the interest of the Ijaw nation, the Niger Delta, the South-South and to collaborate with his counterparts in other parts of the country to make Nigeria a better nation.

He said that the ex-Governor left behind a record of sterling performance as a member of the House of Representatives and as Governor of Bayelsa State for eight years.

Pa Clark recalled that the former Governor declared an emergency in the education sector, established two universities, a polytechnic, several free boarding secondary schools, the Bayelsa International Airport, Roads and bridges, and several facilities in the health, agriculture, and other sectors.

“The Ijaw nation today, more than ever before, needs people with strong character, to run for the Senate, to tackle the lingering issues, and the interest of the Ijaw nation, the Niger Delta; such as Restructuring, True Federalism, Resource Control, and other pertinent matters in the defense of the Ijaw interest, the South-South and indeed the country.

“I make bold to declare that His Excellency, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson, the immediate past Governor of Bayelsa State, has displayed the quintessential Ijaw virtues of honour, courage and integrity, and has never succumbed to intimidation. I believe that he would advance our cause and join other compatriots to work for a better and greater Nigeria.

“He is well versed on issues of Restructuring, True Federalism, Devolution of Power and Resource Control. He has the right language to deploy, the charisma, the right commitment and determination to achieving these objectives.

“As a former member of the House of Representatives, he has hands-on experience on legislative procedures and workings, the leadership acumen to weather through murky waters of parliamentary democracy and gymnastics. Governor Dickson has been a leading voice in the call for restructuring of this country. He makes no pretention about it.

“As the fourth largest ethnic nationality in Nigeria, we stand to gain more by working together than by singing discordant tunes. We must, therefore, settle for the best to represent our interest at the national level.” He said

And the stupidity cycle goes on and on.... angry After looting the state dry as Governor with mediocre performance, they still seek re-election in to the Senate to finish up the 'good works' yet, the foolish pple vote for them.

A single death in the U.S sparked a global revolution. In Nigeria, tens of thousands die daily as a result of these thieves looting and religious leaders scamming yet, nothing happens. Instead, the gullible fools keep celebrating, adulating and worshiping them.

Nigerians has to be the most foolish people on earth! angry

Chief Clark the old horse that retired from politics but refused to be tired.
Dickson will be business as usual in the red chamber, nothing special, but I hope he shouldn't spend more than 4years there just like the twitter Senator.

ALWAYS RECYCLING THE SAME FAILED POLITICIANS.
After 8 years as a Governor, you wan to become a senator. This is a height of ignorance from the masses.
They should select another to go and represent them at the red chambers.
But of course, its all about the crumbs that fall from their tables.
NIGERIAN YOUTHS WAKE UP.

The governors should not arrogate to themselves the senate as their exclusive preserve.

It has become a norm for outgoing governors to go to the senate and take a seat there.

Equally, serving senators, outgoing senators, ex-senators are always dreaming of becoming governor.

ARE THIS POLITICIANS NOT AFTER THEIR OWN SELFISH INTEREST?

Those who want to serve the common man should not be so greedy to serve.

SERIAKE DICKSON with his poor performance as governor for 8 years is going to BENCH WARM the senate seat in the HALLOWED CHAMBERS.

Honourables are becoming DISHONOURABLES by the greed culture.
