Douye Diri, Bayelsa state Governor-Elect

The governor-elect of Bayelsa State, Senator Douye Diri, has attributed the outcome of the Supreme Court judgement as the handwork of God, saying Bayelsa state has been healed.

Recall that the Supreme Court disqualified the election of the All Progressives Congress (APC) David Lyon and returned Diri as the winner of the election.

Diri spoke while being presented with Certificate of Return by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) at the Commission’s Headquarters in Abuja.

According to him, “I will never forget the judiciary,  it is the last hope of the common man. With what happened, God has healed our State Bayelsa. Within this time, God has taken us through a journey of reconciliation and forgiveness”.

Diri and his Deputy, Senator Lawrence Ewhrudjiakpo were presented with their Certificates of Return in a solemn ceremony at INEC conference room by May Agbamu-Uche Mbu, INEC Commissioner in charge of Legal.
