– PDP Chieftain, Mr. Tokpo Coronation said that more resignations were coming
– What is coming is tsunami. More resignations are coming
– Diver said that he wished to make it clear to the Governor that this team are not politicians of like minds
A Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Tokpo Coronation, has said that more resignations were on the way, following the resignation of some aides to Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, ahead of the November 16 Governorship election.
Among those who tendered their resignation letter were the Special Adviser to the Governor on Political Matters I, Stephen Diver and Dickson’s Special Adviser on Power Development, Michael Ogiase.
“What is coming is tsunami. More resignations are coming. Stephen Diver is a man who sees far in politics, a navigator and a man who sleeps and wakes with politics. You can only undermine him at your peril”, he said.
Ogiase, who failed to give reasons behind his resignation, thanked the Governor for the opportunity he gave him to serve the state.
Diver’s letter reads: “Your tenure will come to its end in three months and consequent upon that, you have chosen a team to take over from you as Governor and Deputy Governorship candidates on the PDP platform.
“I wish to make it clear to you that this team are not politicians of like minds with me and it is not part of my character to disagree with my boss on very important decisions that have to do with the future of our people and still remain in government to receive salaries and allowances.
“I hereby resign my appointment in your executive arm of government as special adviser on political matters I”.
