He said: “When he was a governor, he did a lot of wrong things. Like the location of the airport, for instance, is wrong and the amount he claims he spent on it. Dickson did not develop Bayelsa State. Sylva and Alamiesiegha had good plans for the state; Dickson came and scattered everything.

“As a commissioner, Dickson did not come close to anybody. Even as a member of the Senate, he has not been doing anything because he knows it is the turn of the people of Ekeremor. He is doing Ayetofele wrestling and football match, buying used cars for some youths so that he will cause violence in Ekeremor because he is known as a violent person. This time around, Ekeremor people will disappoint him because it is their turn and they will stand by it.”

Hon. Dauyegha also heaped praises on the administration of President Buhari saying that despite the challenges the government got from the previous administration, it has been able to provide succor and relief to the citizens.
