A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Yekini Nabena, has asked Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, to seek caution in an attempt to bring through the back door into the party Governor Seriaki Dickson of Bayelsa state, saying any attempt to disrupt the peace within the party in the state will be resisted.
In a statement, the Bayelsa state party chieftain signed Monday in Abuja, he said Governor Dickson style of politics and his antecedents are contrary to democratic values in APC adding that he is a liability whose aim is to bring confusion into the party.
According to him, Dickson is known for political uncertainty and instability which is capable of destabilizing the winning structure the APC leadership has put in place in the state.
The APC chieftain said Dickson had earlier in a publication expressed doubt that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), if not put together would emerge victorious during the forthcoming presidential poll, saying some forces within the major opposition party in the country were tearing the party apart.
The APC Chieftain observed that with utterances as these from the Bayelsa State Governor, his defection to APC is for a self acclaimed purpose and not for the interest of the party and the people of the state.
“Governor Seriake Dickson’s antecedent as a politician is not to be reckoned with and so his movement to the ruling party is for a special motive not far from coming to destabilize the APC.
“We must ask the governor what his motives behind his decamping to APC are. This is a party he has castigated many times in the past. Is he now joining the party for good or for destruction”, he queried.
“I hereby call on the Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi and all those plotting for the governor to join APC to also tread with caution because his motive is not known to us and his coming to the party will do more damage to the existing peace in the state chapter”, Yekini stated.
