Dickson IS An Emperor –Kimse Okoko

all our courses accredited except perhaps one at the time. But look at what Dickson has done to the university, he has ruined the university. As you know, recently, they lost accreditation for eleven programmes because this man Dickson refused to fund the accreditation process. Funding accreditation process is critical. That is the time when you satisfy all the requirements for the accreditation to take place; buying of equipment, materials, consumables, etc., and Dickson refused, I repeat, refused to give any funding for that process. And they lost accreditation for eleven programmes. That is the sad story for that university.

I Pity Bayelsans –Okoko

Drastic reduction of the monthly allocation because the IGR base in Bayelsa is almost minimal. But if he had saved, if he had done things which he ought to have done, prioritise them, by now people will sympathise with him say look oh, the man tried.

I sympathise with the people of Bayelsa because they are suffering. Really, really suffering in Bayelsa. No salaries for months. Even pensioners have not been paid for months.
