Lyon challenged Dickson to focus on paying civil servants and pensioners, instead of claiming that the APC has no footing in Bayelsa.
The APC candidate described the governor as the Biblical Goliath and Nebuchadnezzar, who refused to listen and adhere to the voice of God.
Lyon said: “We are appealing to Dickson to thread with caution, because he will soon hand over to the APC government so that we can give him political asylum as he will soon be in the ranks of a former governor.
“Governor Dickson today is a replica of Nebuchadnezzar and Goliath of the Bible who refused to listen to the voice of God
Meanwhile, the APC has also called for reconciliation among all aggrieved stakeholders ahead of the election.
