Politics Bayelsa: Why Timipre Sylva Refused to Congratulate Me – Dickson



Bayelsa State governor, Seriake Dickson, has wondered why his opponent in the last governorship election, Timipre Sylva has not congratulated him on his victory.

The governor said Sylva was busy misleading people that he would win at the tribunal, instead of joining him to make the state better.

Attributing his victory over the All Progressives Congress, APC, and its candidate, Sylva, to divine intervention, Dickson insisted that his opponent was relying on the judiciary to make him governor.


In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, in Yenagoa, Dickson said it is only a fool that would expect anyone to think that the tribunal could upturn the decision of the people..

Expressing his readiness to face the APC at the Election Petition Tribunal, Dickson argued that there was enough evidence to counter all the issues raised in his opponent’s petition, “even though I am yet to be served.”

He wondered the kind of magic the APC was expecting at the tribunal.
