Dickson loses mum

Mother of Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State, Mrs. Gold Coast Dickson, has died at 72. In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Francis Ottah Agbo, the governor said his mother died of cancer in the early hours of yesterday at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Centre, Houston, Texas, United States, where she had been receiving treatment. Dickson expressed appreciation to the centre, especially the medical professionals who did their best to save the life of his mother. The governor also thanked family members, friends, political associates and Nigerians generally for their prayers and support in the most trying times for the Dickson family.

Until her death, she was a quintessential mother, devout Christian and community leader who devoted her lifetime to the service of God and humanity. Condolence registers have been opened at the Government House, Yenagoa, the governor’s residences in Opolo, Yenagoa and Toru-Orua community in Sagbama Local Government Area, Bayelsa State Liaison Office (IZON Warri) in Abuja and the Governor’s Lodge, Asokoro, Abuja. The statement said funeral details would be announced by the family later.
