…says it remains the foundation, stability of democracy
Bayelsa State Governor, Henry Seriake Dickson on Wednesday reiterated
his call on political leaders at all levels to support the judiciary,
saying it remains the foundation of the nation’s democracy and
stability.

over the Supreme Court ruling, which validated his election, said the
society would disintegrate, if the Judiciary is threatened in the
course of performing its statutory role.

Governor saluted the courage and resilience demonstrated by all the
judicial officers that adjudicated on the election petition filed by
the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, (APC), Chief Timipre

crowd that received him at Mbiama, a border town between Bayelsa and
Rivers States.
He thanked them for their support all through his travails leading up
to the Supreme Court judgement.

his administration to build Bayelsa state warned youths of the state
not to allow themselves to be used as agents of destabilization to
create crises.
