A member of the House of Representatives, Chief Fred Agbedi, has been appointed head of the Restoration Campaign Organization of Bayelsa State Governor, Mr. Seriake Dickson.
Inaugurating the 13-member team on Tuesday, Dickson charged them to use their wealth of experience and work for his re-election in the December 5 governorship election in the state.
Commissioning the campaign the campaign office at Yenizue-Gene in Yenagoa, the governor assured the team of his support and advised them to act as the campaign directors in their different localities.
According to Dickson, members of the team were carefully selected based on their pedigree and after due consultation with leaders and elders of the party.
He described them as political juggernauts and tested tacticians in their own rights.
Emphasizing on the task ahead, Dickson pointed out that the government is not toying with the campaign, as it is about the integrity and dignity of the state.
He said: “The government will stand with you, be with you as you use your wealth of experience to bear on the job of restoration because your families have donated you to the course of restoration.
“You were carefully selected after consultation with leaders and elders of the party. The state is not playing about the campaign, as it is about the integrity and dignity of the state and the Ijaw nation”.
In his remarks, the former Governor of the state, Chief Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, stressed the need for the newly inaugurated members to be united, dogged, determined and courageous.
The ex-governor insisted that none of the political parties have any agenda for the Ijaw nation, adding that the team is formidable with experienced people to win the forthcoming political battle.
In his acceptance speech, Agbedi promised that members of the team will not disappoint in the discharge of their responsibilities.
