Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State has described the office of state chief executive as restrictive, a glorified prison.
He, however, appreciated friends and acquaintances for their support in seeing him become the first to do two uninterrupted terms in office as Bayelsa State govenor.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Fidelis Soriwei, Dickson was quoted to have made the statement when he played host to the Law students of the 1992 set of the Rivers State University of Science and Technology at Government House, Yenagoa.
The governor added that for God’s intervention, he would not have been able to set the record.
He said: “I thank you for your abiding solidarity. This is not the first time individually and collectively you have been here to encourage and support me in all this period that I have remained here as governor yet, and in some sense, as a glorified prison.
