Dickson, PDP dismiss APC chieftain’s death threat claim
BAYELSA State Governor, Seriake Dickson, has described as wicked and callous the allegation of death threat by a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
Reacting to the claim by former Speaker and erstwhile Acting Governor, Nestor Binabo that the governor had marked him a chief enemy, Dickson said he was not a conventional politician who employed lies and propaganda to score cheap political points.
Binabo had alleged that his life was being threatened by the governor.
He claimed that Dickson, while addressing some non-governmental organisations (NGOs) recently in Yenagoa, had publicly declared that he (Binabo) was his greatest enemy in Sagbama Local Council, where both politicians hail from
Binabo conducted the election that ushered in the governor in 2012.
Also the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) denounced claim, describing it as wicked.
The party in a statement yesterday by the Director of Publicity, Restoration Campaign Organisation, Jonathan Obuebite, stated that there was no time Dickson addressed any gathering where he threatened that “Nestor Binabo was his greatest enemy as alleged.”
