Mr. Jonathan Obuebite
Following a letter of security alert addressed to the governor of Bayelsa State, Mr. Henry Seriake Dickson by the Police Commissioner of the Bayelsa State command, Mr. Peter Ogunyanwo, called on the governor to intervene on what was described as a deliberate move by some elements in the corridors of power denying 3 elected law makers from being sworn in, three months  after their election victories.
The CP gave the names of the said elected lawmakers as:
1. Mr. Alfred Belemote of APGA-Brass Constituency 2
2. Mr. Gabriel Ogbara of  ADC -Ogbia Constituency 2
3. Mr. Gibson Munalayefa Labour Party- Ogbia LGA
The Police Commissioner appealed to the governor for intervention in view of the fact that references made were directed at the governor as being the stumbling block to the 3 legislators elected 3 months before Kombowei Benson Friday, the Speaker was elected and sworn in.
But in a swift reaction the newly appointed Commissioner of Information and Orientation, Mr. Jonathan Obuebite has called on the people of the state that the governor, Mr. Henry Dickson was exonerated from the ordeal of the 3 lawmakers who have not been sworn in 3 months after their electoral victories.
He explained that, the governor been a former Legislator and a Lawyer knows it's implication and illegality and had nothing to do with the issue.
Mr. Jonathan Obuebite who himself was a former Lawmaker in the State House of Assembly is the successor to the immediate past Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr. Dan Kikile Esueme.
