Gov. Dickson condemns Ekiti crisis, calls Buhari to intervene

Bayelsa state governor, Hon. Seriake Dickson, has joined other PDP stalwarts in condemning in its entirety, the political crisis in Ekiti state, calling on all lovers of democracy to prevail on President Muhammadu Buhari towards ensuring that the rule of law is observed.

Governor Dickson made the call in an interview with newsmen, shortly after attending a 3-day retreat for PDP members-elect of the National Assembly, themed, “The Role of The Opposition Party in Facilitating Development and Good Governance”, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

He wondered how the Ekiti State Assembly would properly conduct impeachment proceedings against Governor Ayo Fayose, when it has just a few days left in the life of the legislature and called on President Buhari to intervene, as he is the President of all states, including those governed by the PDP.
According to him, “democracy has come to stay in the country as nurtured under the PDP leadership of the former president, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan for 16 years and should not be jeopardized as a result of the nature of politics played in some states in the federation.”

Governor Dickson pointed out that, under the PDP government at the national level, it allowed freedom of speech to thrive and there were no cases of political prisoners.
