Govs’ Forum: Bayelsa Gov Makes Case On Way Forward


GOV._HENRY_SERIAKE_DICKSONBAYELSA State Governor, Seriake Dickson, has criticised attempts by the outgoing governors to reconstitute the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) barely two weeks to the end of their tenure.

He also deplored the partisan use of the body to achieve self-serving political objectives. Dickson, who alerted the nation on the danger of such moves in a statement yesterday said it came to his knowledge that the outgoing governors had summoned a meeting for this purpose tomorrow.

He said that based on the roles these governors played in the crisis, which engulfed the NGF, they should not be allowed to foist another NGF contraption which could threaten the stability of the nation’s democracy.

“Having gone through those period of the NGF crisis with my respected colleagues, most of whom are now ending their respective governorship tenures, I believe I owe it a duty to our nation and our fledgling democracy to alert the nation and caution my respected colleagues especially the incoming governors that they should not allow the outgoing governors, most of whom created the NGF crisis to foist on our country and political system another

NGF contraption that will in due course threaten the stability of our democracy and be a distraction to citizens and the leadership of our country, as the NGF  crisis or tussle did between 2012 till date,” he said.
