Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Bayelsa state has dared Waripamowei Dudafa, a prominent supporter of Patience Jonathan, wife of former President Goodluck Jonathan, to work against the re-election of the state governor, Seriake Dickson. Dudafa was also an aide on domestic affairs to the then president (Jonathan). The state PDP chairman, Serena Dokubo Spiff, said "Dudafa cannot determine the victory of PDP. All the critical stakeholders in Bayelsa State politics are with Governor Henry Seriake Dickson. They have also endorsed the governor for a second term. The Governor does not need Dudafa's endorsement or support to win his re-election as he has never supported the governor's political ambition".
Spiff added that "Governor Dickson will campaign and win in Kolokuma/Opokuma Local Government Area because the grand masters of Bayelsa State politics are the backbone of Governor Dickson. The governor derives his strength from the people and not like Dudafa who thrives on propaganda and blackmail.
"Instead of dissipating his energy, criticising the governor, Dudafa should go in retrospect and purge himself of the evils and atrocities he unleashed on unsuspecting visitors to the Presidential Villa in Aso Rock, while he served as domestic aide."
