The oppositionAll Progressives Congress, PAC, in Bayelsa state has accused the state government of plotting and executing an artificial war between the Presidency and former Bayelsa State Governor and leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Timipre Sylva.
According to a statement by Mr Doifie Buokoribo, State Publicity Secretary of the party, “Our Wednesday statement was clear and direct: Dickson seeks to create a wedge between Sylva and the Presidency through a fake news campaign
“The issue here is not about Sylva but a campaign of fake news to undermine the Presidency. The purpose for Dickson, of course, is to bolster the faltering fortunes of his party the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state and in the country,” he said.
He said that the equivalent of conscience in government parlance would deal with prompt payment of pay civil servants, promotion of peace as a government policy, and truth in handling welfare matters of the people
“We are glad Dickson has denied he is not going to be involved in this mischief. This is good for the people of Bayelsa State, the polity and the country
“We will now watch and see if Dickson will keep to his words and refrain from the planned hatchet job…”
