Bayelsa State Governor Seriake Dickson was at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja Tuesday.
Dickson arrived the Presidential Villa at about 2.00pm and headed for President Muhammadu Buhari’s office. The governor stepped out of the president’s office at about 2.15pm and refused to be formally interviewed by State House correspondents.
Asked to explain his mission to the Presidential Villa, the governor said: “No comment”. But when asked if he was in the Villa to meet with President Buhari, Dickson said: “I have not told you that I came to meet with the president”.
The governor later left for the Office of the Chief of Staff to the President before leaving the Aso Rock Villa.
Dickson of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and Timipre Sylva of the All Progressives Congress (APC) were the major contenders at December 5 gubernatorial election which was declared inconclusive by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) after violence reportedly erupted in Southern Ijaw local government area.
