I am bat­tle ready for 2016 –Dick­son

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Chris Eze, Ye­nagoa

Bayelsa State Gover­nor Se­ri­ake Dick­son has said that no gang up by any group or in­di­vid­ual can thwart his am­bi­tion of seek­ing re-elec­tion in 2016.

The gover­nor, who spoke in Ye­nagoa, while at the monthly “Trans­parency Brief­ing”, said he has all it takes to take on any op­po­si­tion.

He stressed that he is not new to the strug­gle for power, adding that he had chal­lenged a sit­ting govern­ment in the past and won.

Dick­son who ad­vised those warm­ing up for po­lit­i­cal ac­tiv­i­ties in the state in 2016, not to dis­si­pate their en­er­gies yet, said ef­forts should be geared to­wards get­ting a re-elec­tion for Pres­i­dent Jonathan.

“We need to put our house in or­der. The rest of the coun­try should not see a di­vided Bayelsa. That is what we owe our leader. It is un­for­tu­nate that those who should en­cour­age the unity are leading a mis­guided po­lit­i­cal ad­ven­ture. In this busi­ness, we are tested war­riors. I want to call those who are dancing too early to be pa­tient, and rather prac­tice their dance steps in their bed­rooms. I know what to do when the time comes,” Dick­son said.
