Bayelsa Election: Gov. Dickson Votes, Alleges Hijacking Of Voting Materials By APC
Seriake Dickson, the Executive Governor of Bayelsa has alleged that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is working with security agencies to hijack voting materials.
The governor said this after casting his vote at the Polling Unit 005, Ward 2, Toru-Orua community, Sagbama Local Government Area of the state.

He said that the security agencies in the state had aided the APC to move voting materials meant for Southern Ijaw and Nembe local government areas to unknown destinations.

There is a well-organised election crime ongoing in our state; they have established unofficial collation centres in some places.

There whole intention is to subvert the will of the people and jeopardise the efforts of well-meaning Bayelsa people to develop the state,’’ he said.

The governor further commended the people of Toru-Orua for their turn-our during the election, NAN reports.

Some community people who spoke to NAN expressed their satisfaction at the level of calm and order that was recorded in the course of the election.

They appreciated the presence of security personnel, saying that it helped in reducing the tension among the voting public.

Chief Abite Alawei, a community leader said that he was confident that the process would be concluded without violence.

We have not witnessed any breach of law and order in the community since the process began, our people have conducted themselves orderly.

As you can see, voting is also ongoing, and the process is orderly, we pray it continues this way till the end,’’ he said.

Mr Amaye Soldier, a teacher, while speaking with a NAN corespondent expressed his satisfaction with the conduct of the polling officials in the unit.

We are watching the process, so far, we are comfortable with the conduct of the election officials, they have shown fairness and purpose,’’ he said.

In addition to this, it was reported that Gov. Dickson’s residence did not witness the usual beehive of activities that characterise a governor’s country home during elections.
