    Good result so far

  • larr

    God bless Dickson, Dickson represents the people of Bayelsa State, Silva represents the Hausas/Fulanis who want to use him as prozy to siphon the God given wealth of the Bayelsa people to rebuild the terrorist infested North. I am very proud of you the Bayelsans for your resistance to blackmail, distortion and intimidation. You have demonstrated that it is not business as usual, that your future is in your own hands. How can Silva ignore the bad treatment including stoning him at campaign rallies in the North while Buhari could campaign freely in the SS meted on Jonathan by the Hausas/Fulanis that he represents if he is truly a Bayelsan. Shame on you Silva! You gave your own brother Jonathan away for your selfish interest just as Amaechi did. History will never be kind to you.

      Eventually, your comment shows that your candidate is only interesed in being the governor and stopping the siphoning of funds by through proxy. Please ask your governor to prudently use Bayelsa’s resources since Central Americas will not accept them when oil finishes.

        Ewu Nama what a strange name! As we both know, the people of that region have been treated unfairly by the convolution called Nigerian. It was from their God given natural resources that Lagos was developed, when the Hausa/Fulani jointly conspired to develop the North they moved the capital to Abuja and developed it from the natural resources of the Niger-deltans. No region of Nigeria has suffered man made destruction as seen in the Niger-delta as a result of exploitation and negligence by the federal government that should protect them. The only time a Niger-deltan became a president, he was denied campaigning in the North. Today, the Northerners are licking their self-inflicted wund in the name of BH. They plan to install puppet governor in the name of Sylva, but guess what? The people of Bayelsa are wiser today. They understand the evil plot of APC and Buhari, they are ready to defend what is theirs. Hon. Dickson will maximize the resources both natural and otherwise to the benefit of the people of Bayelsa State. His development policies are that of diversification of revenue sources and human capacity building. Oil or not, Nigeria or not, Bayelsa State will ever live. They do not need anyone else.

        • Ewu Nama

          I really hope he is thinking of the future of the villages there. I am not sure I will be alive when oil finally goes dry but nature needs us humans and we need nature. I hope that people will find it good to visit and live in Bayelsa at that time.

            WAT ARE U SAYIN

          • Ewu Nama

            With the amount of money they have received in the past 14 years I expected copy of Dubai but it was not to be.

          • i_regret_voting_buhari

            ASK UR ABOKI MASTERS WHAT HAPPENED TO NIGER DELTAN MONEY

      • tbt

        You would have saved yourself shame by keeping quite, when you have nothing to say less you are going by what your name means. ewu nama indeed.

        • Ewu Nama

          Ewu Nama knows that they have received USD 140 billion in the past 16 years and that money is enough to build a copy of Dubai in Niger Delta.

  • COSH_Truth_is_Bitter

    South Ijaw ĹG has almost 120000 voters so addition of other 7 LG voters is equivalent to south ijaw’s alone. No shaking, Dickson is a goner.

    • Chintua

      Keep dreaming that he will win all the votes. Is it not shameful that a person who wants to govern a state is beingvrejected in 6 out of the 7 LGAS already and he is banking on rigging himself into office through one remaining LG.

      • Mickey

        Don’t mind them, I don’t know why they are this silly. The only place APC won was Brass and voter turn out was more than 50% which is very unusual. Look at the other places the turnout was less than 50%. This APC chaps are criminals

        • i_regret_voting_buhari

          BUHARI CANNOT RIG AGAIN…ITS TOO LATE

    • Mickey

      Who is this person. Are you ok.

    • i_regret_voting_buhari

      SOUTHERN IJAW….IS THE LG OF ALAMEISEGHA …THE GOVERNOR GENERAL OF IJAW NATION….A GOOD SUPPORTER OF DICKSON…..SYLVA IS ONLY RELYING ON THE MILITARY TO DELIVER HIM THE VOTES….AND THE IJAW PEOPLE ARE MILITANTS IN NATURE…THEY ARE VERY PREPARED FOR THE MILITARY….SO STOP DREAMING

  • SWEET DADDY

    PDP has won Bayelsa State and next year I see Edo State going to PDP, says The ORACLE.

    • i_regret_voting_buhari
