Alaibe also dismissed rumours that Governor Seriake Dickson has already anointed a successor among his aides.

“It is a rumour to assume that Governor Dickson has endorsed anybody. The governor has never said so. His aides have equal rights as others to seek nomination. If the governor is going to endorse anybody, it would be me,” he said.
