Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, has said the six years Goodluck Jonathan spent as Nigeria’s president, was a wasted opportunity for the Ijaws.
Dickson alleged that this was because some Ministers and other presidential aides from Bayelsa were after selfish interests.
The Governor said this while speaking at the Ijaw House, Yenagoa, where Ijaw leaders and youths gathered for the annual celebration of their hero, Major Adaka Boroh, on Tuesday.
Dickson claimed those who served in the Presidency for six years, failed to work with him in the quest to bring development to the state, because “they suffered from the Bayelsa-Ijaw disease of pulling-him-down syndrome.
“It is true that we are celebrating Boroh, but ask yourself whether you are doing your bit. Boroh came, saw and did his bit and has gone. I and my team have come and we have taken up the battle from where Boroh stopped and we are doing our duties.
“Each of us must examine ourselves and to be frank we have not done very serious examination in this state and in the Ijaw nation. We cannot blame God. God has been very merciful and kind to us particularly of late,” he added.
