Members of Bayelsa Executive Council Hail Dickson’s Victory at Supreme Court

By Amos Okioma
LAGOS NOVEMBER 9TH (URHOBOTODAY)-The Bayelsa State Executive Council has congratulated Governor Henry Seriake Dickson and his deputy, Rear Admiral John Jonah (rtd) ?for their remarkable victory at the Supreme Court yesterday.
Spokesman of the Council and Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Hon. Jonathan Obuebite in a statement released last night in Yenagoa and captioned ?” Affirmation of Divine Mandate” attributed the victory to God.

He said the unanimous judgment of the apex court was a confirmation that heavens have sealed and stamped it’s authority that “for once the seat of power in Bayelsa will be occupied for eight years”.
The statement noted that even if elections are conducted a thousand times Dickson and Jonah will still emerge winners because Bayelsans ?believe in them, having fulfilled their promises.
“As a council we congratulate our amiable governor and his deputy? for the sweet victory which although did not come to us as a surprise because we knew that with the facts before their lordships the APC had no case”.
“What the APC and it’s candidate did was to waste their time and that of the judiciary. Chief Timipre Sylva knew he cannot ?have won that case. All attempt to subvert the will of justice was to no avail”.
Hon. Obuebite also on behalf of the council congratulate the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and all true Bayelsans who has stood by the restoration government, saying “their prayers for this victory was not in vain” and urged them to always support the Dickson’s administration.
The Commissioner remarked that with all the legal hurdles crossed, the government will now be more focused to continue its mandate of quality service delivery to the people and enjoined Sylva and the APC to forget any new form of distraction.
According to him God has chosen the duo of Dickson and Jonah to lead the state and no one can challenge such authority as power he stressed comes from God? and he gives it to those he deems fit.
” We know them, those on the other side that pained and frustrated by this defeat they will regroup in one way or the other to start fresh problems but they will not succeed. Never again shall our people be subjected to pain and lack” it concluded.
