The special adviser to the Bayelsa State governor on Political Matters, Hon. Stephen Diver has resigned his appointment over choice of Douye Diri and Lawrence Ewrudjakpo as the PDP flag-bearers. He alleged the duo are not politicians of like minds with him and therefore, not worthy of serving as standard bearers of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming governorship election.
Hon. Diver who tendered his resignation letter dated October 9, 2919 to the governor, said he served and worked with Governor Henry Seriake Dickson loyally without betrayal.
The letter reads, “I want to thank Your Excellency for affording me the opportunity to serve the people of Bayelsa State through the appointment you graciously offered me as special adviser on Inter-Party Affairs and later as special adviser on Political Matters.
“Your tenure as governor 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 under the PDP platform.
“I wish to make it clear to you that this team is not of 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 allowance.
“I hereby resign my appointment in your executive arm of government as special adviser on Political Matters.”
