The governor-elect of Bayelsa state, Senator Douye Diri, has said that God had healed Bayelsa state with the judgement of the Supreme Court that disqualified the election of the All Progressives Congress (APC), David Lyon, and returned him as the winner.
Diri stated this Friday while being presented with a Certificate of Return by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) at the Commission’s Headquarters in Abuja.
He said, “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 the commissioner in charge of Legal, May Agbamu-Uche.
