The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa State has condemned the recent campaign by Governor Seriake Dickson against international oil companies (IOCs) in the state.

Addressing the press yesterday in Yenagoa, the publicity secretary, Mr. Doifie Buokoribo, said the governor was using “a dishonest campaign” to dupe members of the public.

The party added that the campaign was targeted at its members, using the environmental conditions in the area as a peg.

“He has tried to dupe unsuspecting members of the public with a new dishonest campaign invented to conceal a clear political project,” APC stated.

The governor had accused the IOCs of causing environmental degradation and using their crude oil pipeline surveillance contracts to fund crises in the state.
