The people of Bayelsa State are now curiously waiting for a most unpredictable govrrnorship poll in the state. This may not be unconnrcted with change of government that occured at the federal level with the success of the opposition, the APC sweeping asside the PDP at the presidency and majority seats in the Senate and the house of representatives. The only known contender for now is the State governor, Hon. Seriake Dickson who is gunning for a second tenure ticket.
But there are strong indications that some Abuja based politicians, comprising, some senators, members of the house of representatives and other political big wigs of both the PDP, APC, LP and APGA amongst others are in top preparations to open their campaign offices to wrestle Dickson on the governorship poll.
According to Golden Pen  Abuja correspondent, the PDP itself at the national secretariat is not ready to come out with a sole candidate option to skip a party primay to have the incumbet, Governor Dickson emerge as the party's candidate, but is bent on organising a party primary. This confirms that, the factionalised PDP in the state will shake the Bayelsa to its foundation, to finally arrive at who should be the csndidate of the party.
Should govetnor Dickson emerge, the second option is to present a credible candidate of the APC to battle Dickson at the campaign with a view to leading Bayelsa out of opposition at the national level by installing an APC governor.
Our correspondent said that, a credible candidate of Epie origin has been considered to succeed Dickson.

 But at his monthly transparency briefing, held on the 22nd of May, Governor Seriake Dickson stated that he and his team  of supporters are ready for any opposition.
