…Raise N15 million For His Senatorial Nomination Form
Stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party in Sagbama Local Government Area have endorsed the Senator representing Bayelsa West, Chief Henry Seriake Dickson as their sole Senatorial candidate for the 2023 Senatorial election.
The PDP leaders and elders also contributed over N15 million to back their choice of Senator Henry Seriake Dickson as the PDP sole candidate in the forth coming general elections.
The stakeholders were unanimous in their position that Senator Dickson had the capacity, the competence and the dexterity required to continue representation at the Senatorial District.
The leaders who described him as the untiring voice of the Ijaw nation said that Dickson must return to the Senate to continue his sterling legislative performance in the interest of Sagbama West, Bayelsa State, the Ijaw Nation and indeed the Niger Delta.
The Sagbama PDP Caucus leader, Hon. Fyneman Wilson said that, upon the outcome of the 2019 governorship elections which was apparently rigged and results falsified against the PDP, Senator Dickson took all necessary legal steps to upturn the fabricated outcome. He said against all odds, Senator Dickson restored the PDP back to power as the ruling party in the state, regardless of the defection of PDP members to other parties.
Elder Fyneman Wilson further said that, remarkably, Senator Dickson’s short period at the red chambers constitutes a water-shed in the legislative history of Bayelsa West Senatorial District. He noted that, he passionately and fearlessly articulates the views, interest and pains of Bayelsa West Senatorial District, Bayelsa State, the Ijaw nation and the Niger Delta at large.
The Stakeholders and leaders of the party realised fifteen million naira (N15M) from free will donations at the event even as they await more funds from a bank account they opened for the purpose of funding some of the political activities of the Senator.
In attendance at the meeting were elders of the PDP in the Local Government Area led by the PDP Caucus Chairman for the Local Government, Hon. Elder Fyneman Wilson, Dr. O. O. Osusu, Dr. Ayakeme Whisky. Others present were the Chairman Sagbama Lga, Hon Embeleakpo P Alale, Deputy Leader, Bayelsa State House of Assembly, Col. Hon Bernard Kenebai, (rtd), Hon Kemi Prefa, Hon. Okosikeme Emmanuel, Vice Chairman, Sagbama Lga.
Also present were Hon. (Dr) Godbless Nanatumieyeseigha Oyinke, State Assembly Member, Salga Constituency, Hon Salo Adikumo, State Assembly Member, Salga Constituency 3,
Hon. Sinkumo Ekisah, Commissioner – Special Projects, Hon (Dr) Churson Obosi, Commissioner, Special Duties Bayelsa West, Chief (Hon) Okubonanabo Victor – SUBEB Secretary, Hon (Dr.) Ayakeme Tonkiri, Hon Barr. Richard Perekeme, and Engr. Dio Wenapere.

The 14 ward councillors of the Council led by their leader, Rt. Hon Godday Ebikake Dickson, also graced the occasion.
This followed a similar move by prominent political leaders and stakeholders from Ekeremor Local Government Area who have made voluntary contribution of over N15 million to purchase the nomination of interest form for the Senator on March 23, 2022.
Sagbama and Ekeremor are the two local government areas making up the Bayelsa West Senatorial District.
The Ekeremor people were unanimous in their position that Senator Dickson has done so much in the two years he has spent in the Senate as a voice of the people of Bayelsa and the Ijaw Nation.
The meeting held under the Ekeremor Local Government Area PDP Stakeholders for Ofuruma Pepe 2023 Re-election Support Project and was organized under the leadership of the Deputy Speaker Bayelsa State House of Assembly, Chief Michael Ogbere, the Chairman of Ekeremor Local Government Area, Mr. Perekeme Bertola and others.
The meeting acknowledged Senator Henry Seriake Dickson for the various developmental projects established under him in the Local Government Area and Bayelsa state while he served as governor.
