2023: Bayelsa Lawmaker To Supporters, Party Faithful, Discountenance Rumours Of My Disqualification

…Says I’m Still In Senatorial Race, tags ex-Bayelsa Gov, Dickson, ‘political robber’


Lawmaker representing Ekeremor constituency two in the Bayelsa state House of Assembly and Senatorial aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for Bayelsa West Senatorial district, Hon. Wilson Ayakpo Dauyegha has called on his supporters and party faithful to discountenance recent rumours making the rounds that he was disqualified from contesting the forthcoming Senatorial primaries of the party.

The Senatorial hopeful who made the call during an interview with Newsmen in Yenagoa shortly after addressing his supporters expressed surprise over the rumours, this was just as he stated that as against the imaginations of some stakeholders of the party from the state’s Western Senatorial zone, who were bent on undoing him, that he is still strongly in the race.

He hinted that the purported rumours of his disqualification was borne out of the phobia for his person and political aspiration, describing those responsible for his concocted screening-out rumours as those ‘wanting to heat the polity’.

“My alleged disqualification was a figment of the negative imagination of some stakeholders who have phobia for my fast rising political profile and trajectory of political victories’, he said.

Wilson who averred that he would win the forthcoming primaries restated his resolve to work assiduously towards the empowerment and betterment of the Senatorial zone, noting that the sister local government areas of Sagbama and Ekeremor have an age-long agreement for rotation of both the Senatorial and House of Representatives positions.


The aspirant who also bared his mind on his chances of clinching Victory at the general election supposing he wins the Senatorial primaries, noted that by virtue of the old existing arrangement between the Sagbama and Ekeremor people, it is literally and political right for the Ekeremor council area to produce the next senator from the district, hence his victory is assured.

He said: “Politically speaking, by the rotatory agreement between the Sagbama and Ekeremor people, it’s now the turn of Ekeremor to produce the next senator from the Bayelsa West Senatorial zone. All those who are calling and supporting Dickson to contest the forthcoming Senatorial polls and Dickson himself are all polical robbers.

“The first time during the 2019 elections, Dickson then as Governor robbed us(the APC) of our God given Victory. And again now, he’s planning to physically rob the Ekeremor people of the Senatorial seat, but we’ll defeat him.

“Have you seen any major or right thinking polical stakeholder from Ekeremor as a whole supporting Dickson? He’ll lose the forthcoming polls”, Wilson added.

Meanwhile, the Ekeremor-born lawmaker and Senatorial hopeful has again vowed to leave a legacy of development in the Bayelsa West Senatorial zone if he wins the primaries and subsequent general elections.

He noted that he was willing to leverage on his youthful advantage and requisite experience he has garnered as a lawmaker to function effectively in the ‘Red Chambers’ if elected in the 2023 general elections.
