Following the Supreme Court's ruling on Wednesday, the Bayelsa State Governor, Douye Diri, has stated that the judgment was an affirmation of God’s judgement.
He noted that there is no victor, no vanquished, as the victory is for all Bayelsans regardless of party affiliation.
In a statement issued by his acting Chief Press Secretary, Mr Daniel Alabrah, Senator Diri commended the courage and sagacity of the apex court Justices in affirming their judgement of February 13, 2020.
He said, “Once again, I describe myself as a miracle governor. So the Supreme Court just affirmed the judgement of the Almighty God, who made it possible for me to become the governor of Bayelsa State.”
Therefore, he reiterated that his administration will run an all-inclusive government as he called for reconciliation from the opposition.
He said, “My message is that of reconciliation as I will run an all-inclusive government. Let everyone that is aggrieved sheathe their swords. Let us think about Bayelsa first and ourselves last. By this judgement, it is clear the final hurdle has been cleared.”
Meanwhile, Diri stressed that his government will bring in people that have what it takes to contribute to the development of the state and not those who will run it down.
Therefore, he admonished Bayelsans to dissociate themselves from pulling down others and think about building the state.
