Hon. Seriake Dickson
The governor of Bayelsa State, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson and the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, have according to media  reports  joined a case filed in an Abuja High Court, by one of the Political parties,  Hope Democratic Party [HDP] that participated in the December 5th 2015 gubernatorial election in Bayelsa State.
The HDP which dragged the electoral umpire INEC to the Court, calling for the nullification of the said election on the grounds that the party's candidate Bulus Wombu and the running mate King George were deliberately and unlawfully excluded.
The suit was filed by Albert Ambrose Owuru, seeking nullification of the said election, stated further that even the logo of their party, the HDP was not printed on the ballot paper used for the governorship election of December 5th 2015.
Sensing danger in the move by the HDP, the Bayelsa State governor and declared winner of the said election, Henry Seriake Dickson was said to have made a swift move with his party, the PDP and joined in the suit.
From all indications, the political terrain in the all Ijaw state is not yet certain as to what direction the political pendulum is swinging towards. If the Federal High Court heed the prayers raised by the petitioners then Bayelsa may be subjected to yet another round of governorship election in the state to elect their leader.
