Dickson Is A Bushman And Lacks Self-Confidence – Sylva

3 Min Read

Former Governor of Bayelsa State and candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the December 5 governorship election, Chief Timipre Sylva has described the Bayelsa governor, Seriake Dickson as a bushman who lacks self-confidence.
He stated this in an interview with The Nation where further revealed why former president Goodluck Jonathan lost the 2015 General Elections.

According to him, Jonathan was the architect of his failure and being responsible for his exit and being an Ijaw man like him, he is confident the All Progressives Congress will emerge victorious in the state elections.

“Well, I wonder what (Seriake) Dickson mean by a ‘guy man’ but I think I am a typical Bayelsan. Dickson is just a disgrace to himself. Everybody knows that Governor Dickson is a bushman. I am not exaggerating because that’s who he is. He lacks self-confidence, which is why he calls me ‘guy man’, he said.

“I don’t think this will have any impact on the election at all. Every Ijaw man should be fair to me and the APC. The former President set the scene for his exit from office by bringing the war to his home. He started the fire and he didn’t start the fire in any other place, he started it from his own home. Look, after I was removed from office, I went to exile I was arrested by all kinds of people, many times. They never even left me alone after removing me from office; they wanted to kill me; they wanted to jail me; they wanted to do everything to me. I was visited by a lots of elders from different parts of the country; elders from the west visited me; elders from the east visited me; elders from the north visited me and the one question on the lips of all those elders who visited me, ‘do you not have elders in Bayelsa State who can intervene between yourself and the President?’ And I have no answer to give them.”

“He lost the election, the people of Bayelsa must move on in this country. Nigeria is not meant for us to lead forever, it was an opportunity, we led the country and now, it is no longer our time so anybody who is still reveling in that period is still leaving in the history. Please wake up, today is a new day and today there is an APC government at the centre led by President Muhammadu Buhari, the earlier we wake up to that fact, the better for us,” he said.
