Bayelsa Commissioner who abandoned Dickson returns, blames communication gap

The Commissioner for Mineral Resources, Markson Fefegha, who resigned his appointment and left the cabinet of Bayelsa Governor, Seriake Dickson, a few days ago, has made dramatic return.

Fefegha, in a resignation letter letter dated October 18, cited political uncertainty for his decision to forgo the appointment.

But the commissioner, in another letter returned to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), saying his earlier decision resulted from what he described as breakdown in communication.

The commissioner commended Dickson for his developmental strides and urged all his supporters to join efforts to support the PDP to victory in the forthcoming election.

He said: “It is with a deep sense of responsibility that I address my colleagues, political associates and supporters through this medium.

“You will recall that I resigned my appointment as Honorable Commissioner for Mineral Resources on the 18th of October, 2019 because of what I perceived as“political uncertainty” and other considerations.

“This was due largely to the communication gap between me and His Excellency Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson Governor of Bayelsa State at the time. Having met and discussed with him, I have reconsidered my decision to remain in the party and the Government.

“Over the years, we have shared bonds of friendship and the mystic cord of brotherhood, which cannot be sacrificed on the altar of political exigencies.

“I shall continue to lavish adulation to his developmental efforts and quality of leadership to Bayelsa State and the Ijaw nation.

“I urge all my supporters to remain steadfast and continue to support the People’s Democratic Party. Let us join hands together to build a prosperous Bayelsa State”.
