Governor Douye Diri of Bayelsa State has expressed confidence in the ability of the two candidates of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in the Saturday Bayelsa West and Central bye-elections to win the polls and make impacts when they resumed in the Senate.
Diri, who spoke to newsmen shortly after voting at his polling unit 4, ward 6 in his community, Sampou, Kolokuma/Opokuma Local Government Area, described the PDP candidate and former governor in the West Senatorial District, Chief Seriake Dickson and that of the Central Senatorial District, Moses Cleopas, a former PDP state chairman, as incomparable to any other party’s candidate in the bye-election.
According to him, the upper house of the National Assembly is not a place for jokers but people with integrity and understanding who would bring acumen to the Senate and make the state proud.
“Being a former member of the National Assembly, I know it takes a great pedigree to belong there. So I know that the candidates of our great party, the PDP, are eminently qualified to be there”, the governor said.
Diri commended the peaceful nature of the bye-elections and expressed optimism that his party’s candidates would emerge victorious at the conclusion of the exercise.
