Senator Douye Diri, the Governor of Bayelsa State, has revealed that there are people trying to prevent him from serving a second term in office.
However, he’s confident that just like before, their attempts will be unsuccessful at the Tribunal.
Bayelsa state governor, Diri
Diri stated this on Monday inside the St. Peter’s Anglican Church, Sampou, Kolokuma/Opokuma Local Government Area at his late Pa Abraham Joseph Michael Diri one year memorial service.
The governor would be sworn in for a second tenure on Wednesday, February 14 after he defeated Timipre Sylva of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who came second in the November 11, 2023 governorship election.
His words “A tribunal that you wanted to rig and you were stopped from rigging, and we even accepted some of your fake results from Nembe-Bassambiri, and you are the one going to tribunal.
“You know what he is doing now? You know when people are fake they do fake things. They want to go and bring police results as it happened sometime somewhere. They are bringing police report. They are subpoenaing police commissioner to come and testify at the tribunal.
“Is it police that give result or INEC? Fake people. We have crossed that bridge long long time ago and everything they are doing we know and we keep quiet. All we do is to stop them and we will stop them again.”
Diri attributed his election victory to God saying “We have a master strategist who is Master Jesus. We will stop them from rigging at the tribunal again.
“If you want to subpoena anybody subpoena the Independent National Electoral Commission because they are the ones who prepare the results, the police is there for security.”
Vowing to be serious and follow up on all issues at the Election Petitions Tribunal, Diri said “I will follow them bumper to bumper.”
