Bayelsa State Governor, Henry Seriake Dickson, has called on members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) nationwide to work assiduously towards getting back power at the national level in 2019 general elections.
The governor threw the challenge during the state congress of the party in Yenagoa, where he urged the state chapter of the party to sustain the existing unity of purpose that enabled the PDP to win the last governorship election in the state.
While congratulating the electoral panel for the successful conduct of the congresses from the ward to the state level, as well as the new state executive members of the party on their election, Dickson said in the last four years, his government had worked hard to reposition the state and its political culture.
He said the task ahead of the party leadership was enormous and therefore, urged them to collaborate with other stakeholders in the South-south group-political zone and across the country towards winning the general elections in 2019.
In his remarks, the Chairman of the Election Committee from the national secretariat of the party, Abuja, Hon. Edwin Anayo described the congresses in Bayelsa as the most peaceful and transparent in the country.
The new state PDP officials elected are, Mr. Cleopas Mose (Chairman), Ebi Sunny-Goli (Deputy Chairman), Keku Godspower (Secretary), Gbalipre Turner (Treasurer) and Ebi Fafi (Financial Secretary).
Others are Osom Makbere (Publicity Secretary), Luke Demeoru (Organising Secretary), Amalala Atua (Youth Leader), Perekeme Richard (Legal Adviser), Numuomikari Walte (State Auditor) and Eunice Akene (Women Leader).
