The immediate past Bayelsa Governor Senator Seriake Dickson has denied any rift with his successor, Governor Douye Diri.

Dickson, Senator representing Bayelsa West District, made the declaration in Sagbama on Sunday during a grand reception in honour of leaders from the district by the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He explained that he deliberately maintained a distance from the incumbent administration as he desired to give his successor a respectable distance to operate.
Dickson stressed that he was constantly in touch with Diri, especially on issues bordering on the development of the State.
