The Bayelsa Governor was said to have also
used the occasion to seek the Awujale’s blessing for his re-election bid come
December 5, 2015 as he was quoted to have boasted that the opposition APC
cannot wrestle power from him. One of his famous quotations is this; “For all
of us in Bayelsa, we know there is no challenge, contest nor threat of any
kind. All you have heard or read about us is propaganda. There is no APC in Bayelsa
to threaten us” the Governor stressed.

of Alams’ Death by Governor Dickson

Meanwhile Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa

he was harassed and forced to abandon his medical care abroad.

The Bayelsa
state government had said in an earlier statement that Chief Alamieyeseigha died after a long battle with kidney disease,
diabetes and high blood pressure.

Family sources had said that the former
governor’s health suddenly deteriorated after the U.K. government requested his
extradition to face charges years after Chief
jumped bail and left London where he was arrested over
alleged corruption.

The sources said Mr. Alamieyeseigha fled to Dubai
in the United Arab Emirate where he
was receiving medical treatment, to avoid being arrested abroad.

He sought medical care at the University of Port Harcourt Teaching
Hospital in neighboring Rivers State, where he eventually died after slipping
into coma for days.

Mr. Dickson who was the last man who took the late Ijaw Chief on a journey to the Ojude
festival in Ijebu Ode fourteen days before his
demise confirmed the former governor abandoned his medical treatment abroad,
although he did not disclose where he was treated.

He condemned what he described as the
propaganda and orchestrated harassment that led to the untimely death of the
“Governor-General”, and called on the people of the state and Ijaw nation to maintain the peace, as
they mourn their departed leader whom he described as a man of peace.

“To us as a people at this trying time, this
sad incident should serve to unite us and to rededicate ourselves to the ideals
that he stood for,” Mr. Dickson said
in a broadcast Tuesday morning.

“We acknowledge the anger, disappointment and
the sense of outrage felt by our people at home and in the Diaspora,
well-meaning Nigerians and others around the world for the way and manner he
was harassed and forced to abandon his treatment abroad”.

“However, this is not a time for
recriminations and divisions but rather a time for sober reflections. I
therefore call for all and sundry, particularly the youths to remain calm and
maintain the peace as we mourn our departed leader,” he stated.

The governor announced the postponement of
the official flagging off of his re-election campaign earlier scheduled for
this coming Saturday in Yenagoa, in honor
of Chief DSP Alamieyeseigha.

He also declared a seven-day mourning period
during which all flags in public buildings and places would fly at half-mast.

The Olori-Omo Oba of Ijebu Land Otunba (Dr.) Michael Olasubomi Balogun with his wife Olori Abimbola Adetutu

said the country and
particularly the Ijaw ethnic
nationality lost a foremost statesman and leader and the state government was
determined to give Chief Alamieyeseigha
a befitting state burial.

“The state government is determined to accord
him a befitting state burial. In this regard, a high powered burial committee
led by the Deputy Governor has been constituted. This committee will work out
details of the programme with the family and other relevant stakeholders,” he

While eulogizing the former civilian
governor, Mr. Dickson said Chief Alamieyeseigha in his life time, apart from serving
Nigeria as a military officer, also dedicated himself to the service of Bayelsa State and the entire Ijaw nation, both as governor and in
other capacities.

“His selfless devotion and service to Bayelsa State and the entire Ijaw nation earned him the sobriquet, Governor-General of the Ijaw nation in his lifetime,”
He said condolence registers had been opened
at Government House, the state secretariat complex, Ijaw House in Yenagoa
and the state liaison offices in Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt in honor of the deceased.
