“Government as you are aware is a continuum and with the coming of a new democratic dispensation, it has ushered in a new government, which will soon be inaugurated.


The war of supremacy between Governor Seriake Dickson and the camp of President Goodluck Jonathan continues unabated as the Governor once again vowed to discipline his opponents for anti-party activities.

Principally, the Governor is determined to whip Senator Emmanuel Paulker and senior presidential aide, Dr. Waripamowei Dudafa into line or have them expelled from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The Governor reiterated this vow on Friday during his monthly interactive session with PDP members at the party’s secretariat in Yenagoa, the state capital.


THE Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has begun compilation of all electoral offences recorded in the 2015 general elections with a view to prosecuting those found wanting.

But the commission said the successful prosecution of the electoral offenders would depend on the cooperation of the law enforcement agencies, especially the police, which it noted, had the constitutional mandate of arresting offenders.

INEC also said it was still expecting the police which have the constitutional mandate of arresting perpetrators of electoral violence in the country to inform it of number of arrest made and progress made in prosecuting those implicated.
