“I hereby declare Seriake Dickson winner of this special primary election for the Bayelsa West Senatorial District,” he added.

In his acceptance speech, the former governor commended the people of Bayelsa West for their loyalty and support.

He said: “I am a proponent of the zoning. This will make Sagbama and Ekeremor become more united in the interest of posterity. I will spearhead it.

“We will defeat those who are working against the interest of the Ijaw nation. After the primaries, there should be ‘Operation Deliver Your Unit, Ward, and Your Community.”
