The Senator representing Bayelsa West in the National Assembly, Senator Seriake Dickson, has said that  he would work for the success of all candidates that emerged through the process put in place by Governor Douye Diri, who doubles as the leader of  People’s Pemocratic Party, PDP in the state..
The former governor, who bared his mind while speaking with journalists  on Wednesday in Yenagoa when he came for screening for his senatorial seat, express his gratitude to the party supporters for their continued support for the Governor and the PDP administration in the state.
Senator Dickson added that he was in the state to present himself for the screening of his political party in accordance with stipulations of the law and the party’s guidelines, with the commencement of the political process.
According to Dickson who presented himself to the party in pursuit of his bid to return to the National Assembly, said, “As you know today, I am in the state for a purpose. The political process has started. I am here to submit myself in accordance with the constitution and guidelines of our Party, the PDP.
“We thank God, our state is peaceful. I want to thank all our people; men, boys, chiefs, elders, women, people of all descriptions, of all ages who found time, even in spite of the weather that is not so  clement, to be here, to wait here to receive me in this heartwarming  manner”, he said.
He further said, “I lack the words to appreciate our people for their abiding solidarity and support, as well as their prayers. This is recurring and I think it is indeed humbling.
“I am also grateful to several others who are not able to come due to one reason or the other and those who on their own came here to see me, I think it is very heart warming.” he added.
A group of top politicians from Ekeremor and Sagbama Local Government Areas, making up the Bayelsa West Senatorial District, had bought  the expression of interest and nomination for the Senator and presented it to him in Abuja on March 30.
The Senatorial District’s political leaders  had urged him to return to the Senate having handled in a most convincing manner,  issues involving   the interest of the district, the Ijaw Nation and  the Niger Delta, in so short a time.
