As the 2019 general elections gather momentum in Nigeria and particularly in Bayelsa state, the Chairman of Interparty Advisory Council and Accord Party (AP) In Bayelsa Pastor Victor Werinepre Fisi has asked Governor Henry Seriake Dickson to sack his Special Adviser on Political Matters, Hon. Fynman Wilson.
He alleged that the SA is meddling with funds being appropriated for political parties by the state government since the aide is appointed into office.
According to Pastor Fisi, government approves N2m monthly but the SA disburse N50, 000 each to 21 political parties but the remaining N950, 000 is uncounted for.
He described the political aide’s misappropriation of the stipend as a lack of trust, as well as abusing the sensibility of other political parties who are not in the restoration government.
Besides this, Pastor Fisi further alleged that the SA on political matters and his counterpart SSA on Interparty Relations Mr. Robert Eyorokumo allegedly lied to Governor Dickson that they brought an award from the national IPAC for him rather he’s the one who officially brought it from Abuja.
He revealed that the award was not meant for Dickson initially but for the governors of Adamawa, Delta, Abia and Cross River, however, he personally appealed to them that it can equally be given to Bayelsa state governor so IPAC agreed.
According to him, the two political aides presented the award to the governor on the day the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) inaugurated its reconciliatory committee in Bayelsa as if they are the ones who brought the award to the governor from Abuja.
Therefore, he said Hon. Wilson and Eyorokumo are not fit to handle the office of political affairs particularly at this critical period of general elections in the nation.
Reacting, Hon. Fynman Wilson distanced himself from the allegation, saying that he never handles such matters in his office and refers us to the SSA interparty relations.
In his reaction, the SSA interparty relations hinted that he works politically with people who believe in the restoration government, saying that the Accord Party (AP) chairman allegation has political undertone.
