Hon. Michael Magbisa said Senator Dickson was representing the Bayelsa West Senatorial District perfectly in the National Assembly. He said Bayelsa West had been sending Senators to the National Assembly in the past and they have had no impact, no voice at the Sanate and non has come anywhere near the effectiveness of Senator Dickson. He said once Senator Dickson finished his 8 year tenure as Bayelsa Governor and was elected unanimously from the Party Primaries to represent the District, comprising of Ekeremo and Sagbama LGAs, and subsequently won at the general election and was sworn in as a Senator, Bayelsa West has been shocked by the change in the activities of their representative from silence to a huge and very loud voice coming from Senator Henry Seriake Dickson.

He said that is the reason why the leadership of the caucus, led by chief TK Okorotie passed a vote of confidence on the leadership of the Senator at the National Assembly. He said as a party, they are so proud of Senator Dickson and have urged him to do more especially as it relates to the transmission of electoral results. He said they urged him to speak more on the subject matter so that in elections in our areas and Nigeria in general, votes will count. He said they also came to  wish Senator Dickson a very happy New Year.
