Moses Oruaze Dickson was born to the Dickson family of Obu-ware compound in Bolou-Orua in Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, Nigeria. A noble family with ancestral ties with Oba Fidipote Royal family of Idewon in Ijebu-Ode, south-west state of Ogun.
His mother, Mrs. Goldcoast Dickson, played a very critical role in shaping his worldview. As a loving mother, Mrs. Dickson inculcated in her son the virtues of hard-work, learning and generosity. She had to literally sweat via manual farming to provide food and education in a shack that served dual purposes of sitting and sleeping room.
At age 9 Moses went to live with his elder brother, Henry Seriake Dickson, who was a police officer then in Port Harcourt, Rivers State. By the tutelage of his police sibling, the young Moses had his primary education at Police Children’s School in Port Harcourt. Thereafter he enrolled in the prestigious Bereton College, Port Harcourt for his secondary education.
He also attended the Rhoda Heart-felt Comprehensive School in Port Harcourt before proceeding to the Niger Delta University at Wilberforce Island in Amassoma, Bayelsa State where he studied law. On graduation he went to the Nigerian Law School in Abuja to qualify for a solicitor to the Supreme Court of Nigeria and was called to the Bar on February 14, 2012. A date that joyously coincides with the swearing in of his older brother, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson as the Governor of Bayelsa State.
The zeal to become a renowned personality impelled Moses to further his studies, so he jetted out of the country to hone his legal and entrepreneurial potentials. He attended world class tertiary institutions like the University of Bedfordshire, where be bagged his LLM (Distinctions) in International Commercial Law. As well as, Harvard Division of Continuing Education USA and the London School of Economics and Political Science, UK.
