Bayelsa Guber: Gov. Dickson Tenders Video Evidence Of Alleged Electoral Fraud, Violence In LGAs
According to a report by Sun News, Governor Seriake Dickson has tendered a video evidence in support of the killings and election violence that characterised the conduct of last Saturday’s governorship election in Nembe local government area and some other parts of the state.
Addressing a world press conference in Yenagoa on Tuesday, Governor Dickson described the election as a charade and a carefully orchestrated plan to forcefully take over Bayelsa state towards entrenching a one party system in by the All Progressive Congress (APC)
He condemned in its entirety what he termed, the brazen connivance of security agents particularly the Nigerian Army with the APC thugs to hijack electoral materials in most local government areas.
According to Governor Dickson, soldiers were deployed to Ogbia local government area and other parts of the state led by a certain Lieutenant Col from the 6th Division of the Nigerian Army to cart away electoral materials thereby undermining the process in favour of the APC.
The governor therefore called on the APC-led Federal Government to take drastic action in safeguarding the country’s democratic principles and protecting the fundamental rights of Nigerians in every election.
The Governor who was speaking for the first time after the conduct of the election noted with dismay the involvement of the Army in the killings of some members of the PDP, ballot snatching and hijacking of election materials by APC members and declaration of results by INEC even in the areas where election did not hold.
The Governor who urged Bayelsans to be calm said that the reprehensible acts against democracy would be addressed through democratic procedures.
