The Governor of Bayelsa State, Seriake Dickson, has described the Supreme Court ruling upholding his victory in the last governorship election in the state as well deserved.

According to him, the victory is a further confirmation of his overwhelming triumph at the polls, a statement by his media aide, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, said on Tuesday.

Reacting to the victory, Dickson commended the Judiciary for rising up to the occasion by standing firm and reaffirming the earlier decisions of the tribunal and the Appeal Court, which had also dismissed the petition of the All Progressives Congress candidate, Chief Timipre Sylva contesting his victory.

The Governor used the occasion to express his gratitude to the people of the state for their unwavering support before, during and after the last governorship election in the state.

While thanking God for his victory at the apex court, he restated his commitment to developing the state to the best of his abilities.

He added that despite the economic downturn, his administration would not renege on its agenda of restoration consolidation.

“This is a total victory and it is for the entire people of Byelsa State and a victory for the nation’s democracy,” he noted.
