|Hon. Seriake Dickson|
Governor of Bayelsa State
which the affairs of the Christian Faith had been treated with levity by the Seriake Dickson administration from inception.
Clergymen and Christian faithfuls who spoke to Golden Pen Newspapers on strict conditions of anonymity said it was not expected of the Dickson administration to delay in the very important Christian exercise, of Pilgrimages to the HolyLand Israel to participate in the annual Spiritual Exercise of Praying for the Nation and the State and her leaders.
The delay of the take-off of Bayelsans Pilgrims gives the impression that the State Governor who is a Christian leader had not given due attention to enable Bayelsan Pilgrims to join other Nigerians and people all over the world to pray at the Holy sites.
The delay they say may not be unconnected with the laxity and the incompetence of the Advisers who fail to imtimate the Governor the reality on ground and importance of Pilgrimage exercises in Christendome and the reason why Bayelsa should be at the forefront especially now that Dr. Jonathan who is a Christian is the President of our Country, Nigeria.
They urged the Advisers to rise up to the Challenges and meet with the Governor to act without delay with a view to taking away the looming disgrace against Bayelsa on the situation of abandoning intending Pilgrims after all the processes to their take-off including screening by all relevant Agencies were completed, should the exercise fail.
