Bayelsa Commissioner Returns to Government, PDP 6 Days After He Resigned


Markson Fefegha, the Bayelsa state Commissioner for Mineral Resources has rescinded his decision to resign his appointment and membership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) less than one week after he quit his position.

Fefegha in a letter announcing his return blamed his earlier resignation on the breakdown in communication between him and the state’s governor, Seriake Dickson.

“It is with a deep sense of responsibility that I address my colleagues, political associates and supporters through this medium.

“You will recall that I resigned my appointment as Commissioner for Mineral Resources on the 18th of October, 2019 because of what I perceived as “political uncertainty” and other considerations.

“This was due largely to the communication gap between me and His Excellency, Henry Seriake Dickson, Governor of Bayelsa State at the time. Having met and discussed with him, I have reconsidered my decision to remain in the party and the government.

“Over the years, we have a shared bond of friendship and the mystic cord of brotherhood, which cannot be sacrificed on the altar of political exigencies.

“I shall continue to lavish adulation to his developmental efforts and quality of leadership to Bayelsa State and the Ijaw nation.

“I urge all my supporters to remain steadfast and continue to support the Peoples Democratic Party.

“Let us join hands together to build a prosperous Bayelsa State.

I thank you for your understanding” he said.

Fefegha had on October 18 resigned from the government and the party.
