Some of the Peoples democratic party(PDP) members have condemned the earlier insistence by Dickson and some party chieftains that Erwrujakpo, who hails from his Sagbama Local Government Area should be Diri’s running mate.
Governor Dickson convened a stakeholders’ meeting to review the decision within the September 23 time frame for substitution of candidates.
The stakeholders issued a statement through their Co-convener Mr Ogorika Kakandar, said the people of Bayelsa seemed to have forgotten so quickly the work and service oriented attributes of the senator when he was the commissioner for Works and Infrastructure.
Kakandar said: “Bayelsa West Senatorial district is at an advantageous position in producing the next deputy governor of the state. This informed the PDP leadership’s nomination of Senator Lawrence Ewrujakpo.

“We express our confidence in Senator Lawrence Ewrujakpo as a dependable ally to every progressive Bayelsan, a symbol of inspiration and a servant-leader who gives hope to followers.
