Bayelsa: Seriaki Dickson Re-Election Bid Threaten as Six Commissioners Resign Within a Month
LAGOS NOVEMBER 6TH (URHOBOTODAY)-Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State seems not to be having the best of time in his bid for a second term in office as another top aide, the State Commissioner for Lands and Survey, Chief Furoebi Akene, has resigned from his administration. This brings to six the number of aides that have resigned in the last one month.
Although Akene did not state specifically the reason for his resignation, it was gathered that he had been at a cold war with the commissioner for works whom he had accused of usurping his duties, as the commissioner for lands.
Pissed off by the refusal of Dickson to look into his complaints against the Commissioner for Works, Akene had moved abroad in the last three months until he returned this week to tender his resignation.
Akene, in his resignation letter to the governor, said his decision to pull out of the cabinet was to enable him attend to pressing personal and family issues just as he expressed gratitude to the governor for giving him the opportunity to serve the state.
