OGBIA—THOUSANDS of youths, weekend, converged on Ogbia main town, headquarters of Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, for a solidarity rally in honour of Governor Seriake Dickson of the state, who turned 52.
Also, the Bayelsa State Executive Council has commended Governor Dickson on the occasion of his 52nd birthday, describing him as a pragmatic leader, whose life is worth celebrating at all times.
Spokesman of the council and the Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, stated this in a goodwill message on behalf of other members of the council.
According to him, at 52, Governor Dickson has achieved so much and has affected the lives of people positively through his patriotic and benevolent leadership style.
Meanwhile at the rally, the jubilant youths who defied an earlier attempt by authorities of the council to prevent them from holding “the solidarity/thank you rally,” marched round the area singing and praising the governor for his support to Ogbia kingdom.
