“We the women of Twon Brass kingdom are gathered here today to extend our heartfelt gratitude to our miracle governor Douye Diri for the great thing he has done for us.

“I remember, before this concrete road you are seeing today, when you come to the junction, especially at the beginning of the road where the roadblock is, there is a big trench, it’s like a river. One can’t pass the road whenever it rains.

“I used to pity members of the Assemblies of God mission. Because on Sunday when they are beautifully dressed to dance and praise their God but upon getting to the road they’ll fold their beautiful dresses just because the road was so bad.

“But today, our Godsent governor and leader, even though he is not from here, decided to undertake this road project. We thank him. He’s a Godsent and may his reign as governor be successful,” she said.

Similarly, the president of the women of Assemblies of God Church in Twon Brass, Deaconess Rita Spiff while also speaking at the gathering expressed joy in the road construction which is near completion.

She said it feels surreal that the road is almost completed, adding that members of the church used to skip church services because of the bad state of the road.

She said, “Sometimes when I walk on this concrete road by our miracle governor, I feel like I’m in another town. This is because initially, the bad state of the road used to make people postpone their salvation.

“They would like to attend service but because of the road, they’ll say next time. But today we are gathered here to thank God for what he has done for us through Governor Douye Diri.

“It’s like magic to me seeing how this road has been well constructed. Today, we ply the road with smiles on our faces.”

The Deaconess continued, “In the bible, we have what we call destiny connectors not helpers. These set of people don’t have the means to help but they can connect you to one who can help and this is what our Daddy (Hon. Nathaniel Ngo Sylva) and brother (Mr. Nimiworio Whyte) have done.

“They carried our problem to the governor and he gave them the go-ahead to construct the road.

“I am overwhelmed by the governor’s gesture, I want to say that he has the people of Brass at heart. We thank him immensely for this great gesture.”

On his part, Hon. Nathaniel Ngo Sylva who is the facilitator of the project opined that the reason for politics is to deliver goods to the people.

According to him, the road which is one of the most strategic inner roads within the community as it leads to the Assemblies of God Church—one of the largest churches in Twon Brass before being constructed by governor Diri—was said to have been overlooked by successive state governments.

In his words, “The reason why we play politics is to bring good things from the government to the people so that the electorate too will be happy.

“This road here has been in a bad state for ages. Many governments have come and gone but none thought of fixing it, but Governor Diri has done it.

Diri is a listening leader unless you don’t know him. If you approach him on behalf of your people, he will listen and will quickly act and approve whatever project you want to do for your people.

While he described the Bayelsa State helmsman as a listening and performing governor, Sylva canvassed for Diri’s re-election, saying, “Any vote you cast for Douye Diri is for your prosperity and benefit.”

Ngo-Sylva added that Diri “is not the type that will forget those that vote and put him in power. He is a free man with a good heart. God will continue to bless and prosper him in the name of Jesus.”

Also, Apostle Baro Ebinimie Sunny, the
Chairman, Brass Area, Assemblies of God Church, commended the state governor for approving the road.

“God has used Ngo-Sylva to do this road through the miracle Governor,” he said.

He led prayers for the governor for a successful reign in office.
