Diri needs to be reelected to complete ongoing projects—says aide, Domkpee

Yenagoa—Bayelsa State Governor, Senator Douye Diri needs to be reelected to complete most of the impactful, people-oriented projects he has initiated as well as execute others to improve the lives of Bayelsans.

This is according to Mr. John Domkpee, the Special Assistant on New Media to the Bayelsa State Governor via a statement he issued in Yenagoa on Friday.

The media aide also said Bayelsans can not afford to allow failed leaders to take over the reins of power in the state, claiming that the All Progressives Congress candidate for the Bayelsa Guber election, Chief Timipre Sylva, failed as governor for five years.

According to him, Sylva does not have the people of the state at heart and is only vying for the governorship seat for personal gains.

The statement reads:

“Reelecting Governor Douye Diri is the best decision Bayelsans will make on November 11 because he remains the best amongst all candidates aspiring to govern the state.

“Bayelsans cannot afford to be led by leaders who have been tested and failed. The APC candidate Chief Timipre Sylva, in particular, failed woefully as governor for five years and couldn’t drag significant meaningful projects to Bayelsa as minister.

“We know he does not have the interest of Bayelsa at heart regardless of his antics and ill-intentioned desire to rule the state again.

“We cannot as a state go back to the days when violence was the order of the day. We cannot go back to the days when the government spent unwisely without giving proper account of funds accruing to the state.

“The Governor needs to be reelected to complete most of the good projects he initiated as well as execute others to better the lives of Bayelsans

“Bayelsans are satisfied with the performance of Governor Diri and are determined to come all out to vote for him on the day of the election.

“The masses are also determined to protect their votes in spite of the evil plans by the APC to use so-called federal might that has never worked in Bayelsa because the state is traditionally a PDP state.”
