PDP Hails Appeal Court Judgment Affirming Governor Diri’s Election
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) applauds the judgment of the Court of Appeal, which affirmed the election of Governor Douye Diri of Bayelsa State.
The PDP asserts that the judgment is victory to rule of law and the genuine will of the people of Bayelsa state.
Our party congratulates the people of Bayelsa and notes that the celebration that erupted in state at the breaking of the news of the verdict is not only a testimony that indeed justice was upheld but also that Govenor Diri is indeed the choice of the people
The PDP stresses that just like other governors elected on the platform of the PDP, Governor Diri indeed hit the ground running in the task of developing Bayelsa state, particularly in his outline of projects in key sectors including, manufacturing, agriculture, oil and gas, power, road infrastructure, education, among others, despite the prevailing fiscal challenges.
Our party therefore urges Governor Diri not to relent but continue in his commitment towards the good of all, in line with the manifesto of the PDP.
