PDP Has Grassroots Support in Bayelsa – Dickson
Bayelsa State Governor, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson has expressed optimism that the Peoples Democratic Party will win the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the state by a landslide because the party has genuine ideologies and a strong presence at the grassroots level.
Dickson said this while speaking at the national secretariat of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in Abuja after submitting his governorship nomination/ expression of intent form to the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Alhaji Abubakar Mustapha.
He said “You can only win election if you are in charge of the grassroots. The PDP produced all members of the National Assembly, 22 out of the 24 members of the state House of Assembly, 105 out of 105 councilors, the entire eight council chairmen and several government appointees who cut across all units, wards and local governments of the state.
“Will these people fold their hands and watch the opposition write results, certainly no.”
He ascribed the party to a war horse with formidable structure which will penetrate every part of the state to ensure the party’s victory in the December 5 governorship polls.
He also added that the amount of support he has gathered is overwhelming and no other candidate can boast of such.
