Already, he said Dickson sent a letter to the commission explaining the spiritual importance of the date to Bayelsa and why the election should be rescheduled to another day.
He said: “November 2 is statutorily significant in the state. It is Bayelsa Thanksgiving Day. In fact, in 2012, the first executive bill Governor Seriake Dickson sent to the state House of Assembly immediately he assumed office was the Bayelsa State Thanksgiving Day Bill.
“The bill was expeditiously passed into law by the Kombowei Benson-led legislative arm and November 2 was dedicated to thanksgiving and prayers in the state. Since he assented to the bill in 2012, Dickson has kept faith with the provisions of the law.
