Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, has urged the people of Bayelsa and political stakeholders to keep faith with the Peoples Democratic Party.
He made the appeal after a crucial meeting with key political stakeholders in the state, in Yenagoa, a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Daniel Iworiso-Markson, said on Monday.
He described Bayelsa as a traditional home and stronghold of the party, from the advent of the present democratic dispensation in 1999.
He said the people of the state, especially the political class, owed the party a duty to remain loyal and committed to its principles, goals and ideals, which had become a part of the state.
According to him, as one of the major beneficiaries of the party, in the time past, it has become even more expedient for the people to remain resolute in their support for every programme of the PDP with the governorship and State House of Assembly elections still to come.
He stressed that Bayelsa could not afford to sit on the fence now, but maintained its ever relevant and dominant posture in the affairs of the party.
He used the occasion to renew his call on every Bayelsan, who truly loves and wishes the State well, to turn out en masse and vote massively for all PDP candidates in next Saturday’s State House of Assembly polls.
