The Ijaw leader and marine expert, in a statement, yesterday, in Warri, expressed appreciation to the people of Bayelsa for the supports and casting their votes en masse for the PDP and Governor Dickson.

Hitler congratulated Dickson on his re-election and appealed to Chief Timipre Sylva, candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC, to accept the outcome of the election and work with the governor.

He, however, sympathised with the various families, who lost their loved ones during the election, adding that “now that the elections are over, the people of Bayelsa State should live in peace and come together to develop the state.”
