Goodluck Jonathan, the former President of Nigeria, has endorsed Bayelsa State governor, Seriake Dickson for a second term.
Jonathan gave his blessings to Dickson, while receiving him at his country home, Otuoke, in Bayelsa.
The former President’s endorsement of Dickson, is captured in 4 quotes;
1. “If Bayelsa is compared to other states in the country in terms of the level of physical infrastructure coupled with the degree of indebtedness in terms of bank loans and capital market, Dickson deserved to be praised.”
2. “I am not expecting the governor to score 100 per cent. There are three key parametres I will like to score Governor Dickson which are payment of salaries, physical infrastructure and low indebtedness of the state in terms of bank loans and in the capital markets.”
3. “If you compare what has happened in other parts of the country, you will praise the governor. People should think more of about the way the state is being run and prepared for our future generation.”
4. “Bayelsa is not a cursed state. On the notion that governors in Bayelsa cannot do 8 years; it slows down the rate of development and except there is continuation in government, development will be truncated. Performance is not about satisfying individual needs and so we need to encourage Governor Dickson to go for second term.”
