The chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Bayelsa state on Tuesday raised an alarm that the governor of the State, Mr. Seriaki Dickson is on the verge of wasting a generation of young people, following the seizure of results of students in the state who sat for the recent West African Examinations Council, WAEC, examination.
WAEC withheld the results of the state’s students over unpaid debts owed it by the Bayelsa government, meaning that the students who passed the last Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examination, UTME, sitting might not be able to go ahead in securing admission into tertiary institutions.

In a statement made available by the APC publicity secretary in the state, Fortune Panebi, the party berated Dickson, accusing him of deliberately scuttling the destinies of bright children who are the leaders of tomorrow.

According to the statement, “While the situation the non-payment of teachers’ salaries in Bayelsa continues to be an embarrassment to all and sundry even as the governor’s deliberate impoverishment of public servants has now become an ego issue on his part, a far more dangerous twist is looming in the education sector in Bayelsa state.

“This is the seizure of the results of secondary school pupils by WAEC over the state government’s refusal to pay statutory dues. This is a brazen act, the height of irresponsibility on the part of a government. To say the least, Governor Dickson is deliberately wasting away a generation of tomorrow’s leaders due to his inaction in this regard.

“While we call on well meaning individuals to prevail on the governor, we sympathize with the parents of the pupils for this pain, an ordeal not worth it for whatever reason. To the affected pupils, while we pray for a divine intervention in this regards, we share in your distress, despair and disappointment.”
