Dickson Begs PDP Members Not To Decamp

Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, has begged members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state not to defect to the All Progressives Congress (APC) despite the outcome of the March 28 presidential election.

According to his Chief Press Secretary, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, the governor made this plea on Saturday after a meeting with key political stakeholders in the state in Yenagoa.

Speculations were rife that PDP big-wigs in the state may defect to the APC following President Goodluck Jonathan’s defeat by Muhammadu Buhari of the APC in the presidential election.

Dickson therefore urged politicians in the state to “keep faith with the PDP” as the party cannot afford to lose the state to the opposition.

He described Bayelsa as the traditional home and stronghold of the party since the inception of the present democratic dispensation in 1999.

He said the people of the state, especially the political class, cannot abandon the party to its fate now having lost the presidential election to the APC.

Dickson said PDP members owed the party a duty to remain loyal and committed to its principles, goals and ideals “which have become a part of the body polity of the state”.
