‘Go to court if you’re aggrieved’—APC slams Dickson for saying no election held in Bayelsa/ Dickson

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has berated Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, for saying no election took place in the state on November 16.

Recall that the governor had recently condemned the governorship election in the state, claim ‘It’s an insult to say’ election took place.

Dickson had further alleged widespread irregularities during the poll, even as it accussed APC of conniving with security agencies to intimidate the electorates.

But reacting in a statement through its Publicity Secretary, Doifie Buokoribo, the APC accused the governor of stoking flames of violence with his comments.

The party urged Dikcson to approach the court to seek redress if he has reservations about the election won by David Lyon, its candidate.

According to the party, the governor’s comments were indicative of his desperation to paint the APC as well as electoral and security agencies that conducted the election in bad light while absolving himself and the Peoples Democratic Party, his party, of any wrongdoing.

The statement read: “Dickson has displayed everything, but commitment to democratic ideals and legal processes of electoral conflict resolution. We, however, unequivocally state and also remind Dickson that the elections have been concluded and the governor-elect, Lyon, is only waiting to be sworn into office. And for those who feel aggrieved, like Dickson, there are constitutionally prescribed processes open to them to follow to redress their grievances.”
