YENAGOA—A faction of the Bayelsa State chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, has alleged that Governor Seriake Dickson was the brain behind the current crisis in the party.
In a statement in Yenagoa, yesterday, the state Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr Paniebi Fortune, alleged that the statement read by the embattled state chairman, Chief Tiwei Oruminighe, emanated from one Daniel Iworiso-Markson, who is the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Dickson.
Fortune said: “It has become compelling for us to expose the underhand dealings between Governor Dickson and the suspended state chairman of the APC, Chief Oruminighe, and two others.
“However, our attention has been drawn to a statement laced with lies and outright misinformation purporting financial dealings between two leading lights in our party, Chief Timipre Sylva and the Minister of State for Agriculture, Senator Heineken Lokpobiri, prior to the appointment of the latter as minister.
“We find these lies very disgusting and ignoble, and should be seen as the ranting of a bunch of misled ingrates. But our curiosity is that the statement emanated from Iworiso-Markson, Chief Press Secretary to Governor Dickson.”
