“The state is politically divided into Nembe, Ogbia and Southern Ijaw, that is the home LGA of ijaws where governor Dickson hails from.“This is the strongest home base of the PDP. PDP has been winning elections in this core Ijaw LGA because it is the ancestral home of all Ijaws where the former governor and Ijaw leader DSP Alamiseigha and Dickson hail from.

He alleged further that some officials of the Federal Government and some ministers have directed the INEC to write the results in favour of APC.

“There is the use of Police and military personnel to intimidate voters and also scare them away as results are already written as directed,” he addedSecondus said that winning the Bayelsa governorship election is part of APC’s plot of having a foothold in the South-South, saying, “all ministers and government officials from the zone have been directed to ensure that Bayelsa is delivered to the APC at all cost.”

He called on the international community to be aware of the alleged plot of the APC controlled Federal Government to win the election at all cost, warning that the action could have consequences of hurting the nascent democracy in Nigeria.

Secondus said that Nigerians and the global community should hold the APC responsible should any thing happen to democracy in the country “because of the APC’s quest to turn Nigeria into a one party state.”
