Bayelsa Governor, Senator Douye Diri, has said the Supreme Court’s ruling was only affirmation of God’s judgement on the state.

Diri, in a statement by his Acting Chief Press Secretary, Daniel Alabrah, also said that there was no victor no vanquished as the victory was for all Bayelsans regardless of party affiliation.

He commended the courage and sagacity of the apex court justices in affirming their earlier judgement of February 13, 2020.

He said: “Once again, I describe myself as a miracle governor. So the Supreme Court just affirmed the judgement of the Almighty God, who made it possible for me to become the governor of Bayelsa State.

“For me, there is no victor no vanquished as the victory is for all Bayelsans. It is not a winner takes all.

“My message is that of reconciliation as I will run an all-inclusive government. Let everyone that is aggrieved sheathe their swords. Let us think about Bayelsa first and ourselves last. By this judgement, it is clear the final hurdle has been cleared.”

Diri said his government would bring in people that had the wherewithal to contribute to development of the state and not those who would run it down.

He urged Bayelsans whose stock in trade was to pull others down to change their ways and think about building the state.
