Dickson Looting Govt. Assets, Planning To Flee Nigeria, Says APC Chieftain


A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Yekini Nabena has alleged that Bayelsa state governor, Seriake Dickson was planning to flee the country before his February 14 hand over date to avoid investigation

Nabena also alleged that the outgoing government was already planning to loot government property, vehicles and other items in the Government House.

In a statement in Abuja, Nabena ask Bayelsans to ensure vigilance on all the public property, especially government vehicles, generators, electronic equipment, furniture, Air Conditioners and other items and ensure they are not looted by the outgoing government.

Nabena who is also the Deputy spokesman of that APC referred to a recent statement by the media aide to the Bayelsa State Deputy Governor, disclosing that some government property had already been stolen.

“As contained in a statement issued by the media aide to the Bayelsa State Deputy Governor, it has already been disclosed how some yet-to-be identified individuals have looted property, including, a generator, electronic equipment, furniture, Air Conditioners and other sundry items in the Deputy Governor’s Guest House in Government House, Yenagoa.

“We have since learnt that the last minute looting of the state government property is being orchestrated by Governor Dickson and his Chief of Staff, Talford Ongolo in the guise of hand over activities. This is a glimpse into the greedy and shameless level of stealing Bayelsans had has to endure under the outgoing administration of Governor Dickson.

“Even though the incoming government of APC will not persecute anybody, the outgoing PDP government must account for every kobo misused while in office.”

Nabena said further that based on intelligence reports the incoming government has alerted the international community of Governor Dickson’s plan to flee the country in an attempt to evade investigation and possibly prosecution over his alleged well-reported corrupt activities as Governor.

“The international community, particularly the US and UK authorities is by this statement alerted of Governor Dickson plan to escape the country. Governor Dickson has many questions to answer particularly the fraudulent and inflated construction of the unused Bayelsa International Airport and other elephant projects that litter the state,” Nabena stated.

He warned the outgoing government officials and civil servants accomplice not to fraudulently acquire government property, saying the law will take it cause on whoever indulge in such act no matter how highly placed the person is.

Efforts to get the governor’s spokesman for comments on the allegations did not succeed as at press time.
