Access Bank

A former Governor of Bayelsa State, Seriake Dickson, has called on the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), to caution the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva, against denigrating critical institutions.

He condemned the alleged scathing attack on the judiciary by Sylva, who claimed that the All Progressives Congress (APC) was not in a contest with Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), but the judiciary in the forthcoming December 5 senatorial bye-elections.

Dickson described the Sylva’s outburst as “condemnable, rude, reprehensible and shocking” in a statement on Tuesday.

Dickson said: “I hereby call on the President to stop Sylva from masterminding violence, subverting the electoral process, insulting judicial officers.”

“Sylva does not put his party together to win election. He insults judges and throws invectives at the judiciary with the intent to harass and intimidate judges from doing their jobs.”
