Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State on Tuesday while speaking at a conference of Ijaw leaders and youths said that the six (6) that Ex-President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan ruled as President was a wasted opportunity for the Ijaw nation.
The governor stated this during the annual celebration of Major Adaka Boroh at the Ijaw House, Yenegoa, capital of Bayelsa State.
Dickson noted that all the aides and Ministers from Ijaw who worked with the former president failed to work in the interest of the Ijaw people.
According to Dickson, “they suffered from the Bayelsa-Ijaw disease of pulling-him-down syndrome.”
“It is true that we are celebrating Boroh, but ask yourself whether you are doing your bit. Boroh came, saw and did his bit and has gone. I and my team have come and we have taken up the battle from where Boroh stopped and we are doing our duties.”
“Each of us must examine ourselves and to be frank we have not done very serious examination in this state and in the Ijaw nation. We cannot blame God. God has been very merciful and kind to us particularly of late,” he added.
