Bayelsa State Governor, Honourable Henry Seriake Dickson, on Wednesday reiterated his belief in the existence of two dominant parties in the country, but regretted that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is grossly fragmented, a development he noted has made the party disorganised. He reasoned that the cluelessness and insensitivity of the APC have left the country divided more than ever before and called on President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently unite Nigeria.
According to a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Francis Ottah Agbo, Dickson stated this during a live media interview in his office in Yenagoa.
The Governor also condemned what he calls the constant demonisation of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) by the APC, describing it as childish and uncalled for. While noting that the looters lists were a distraction on the polity, the governor advised the Federal Government to deliver on their promise to Nigerians!
He lamented the spate of senseless killings in Nigeria and urged the APC-led Federal Government to focus on tackling insecurity and economic recession instead of distracting Nigerians with the so-called looters lists.
His words: “This country needs two strong political parties. A united, not fragmented party in government and a cohesive and clear-headed opposition party. The constant demonization of the PDP by the APC, for me, is childish and uncalled for. I have the feeling that the APC, though in power, still behaves like a party in the opposition and on a campaign mode. I believe the APC has failed on its promise to Nigerians, they have failed to secure the country, the country is on a precipice. I think they should have done better than they are doing right now.
“The PDP made its mistakes but it achieved a lot for our democracy and our country. There is too much division in the country right now, and the Federal Government has to unify the country. They should look at the wanton killings in the country not only by Boko Haram but by the herdsmen and arrest the ugly situation.
