Ex-Gov. Sylva describes his LGA chairman as an “empty headed cretin”

The former governor of Bayelsa State and leader of the All Progressives Congress in the state, Timipre Sylva, has said that Gov. Seriake Dickson is sponsoring a “clandestine scheme to make him a subject of calumny in the media.”

What exactly is this alleged plot about?: According to a statement signed by Media Adviser to Sylva, Doifie Buokoribo, there are two legs to the plot:

  1. “Dickson’s media aides and new media brigade will in the next few days flood the social and mainstream media with lies and fake news in order to discredit Sylva. Dickson is living in fear, the fear of Sylva. The governor finds it difficult to come to terms with the fact that despite his shenanigans and schizoid propaganda to diminish the former governor, Sylva’s political profile continues to rise and rise and rise.”
  2. “The other leg to Dickson’s paranoia is the attempt to destabilise Sylva’s home community of Brass Island,” the statement said. “Already, Dickson has appointed a cretin as Caretaker Committee Chairman of Brass Local Government Council to do the dirty job. Last Thursday, this empty-headed local government caretaker chairman shot two APC supporters with the help of mercenaries and thugs. It did not end there. He went on to declare a curfew in the Island, a place that has been peaceful. Clearly, these actions are meant to provoke Sylva. As a man of peace, the former governor has had to restrain his supporters from seeking self-help.”

Quote:

“We call upon Dickson to leave Sylva alone. Since he is governor in the eyes of the law, let him govern Bayelsa State. Previous attempts by the forces of reaction, including Dickson, to bring Sylva down have failed. There is no doubt that this attempt too, will come a cropper. Similarly, we call upon the security agencies to bring the Caretaker Committee Chairman of Brass Local Government Council to book for disturbing public peace and order. Bayelsa State belongs to all of us. Together, we will shape its destiny.”
