Bayelsa State Governor, Douye Diri, has finally spoken on the Supreme Court judgement that installed him as governor hours to the the inauguration.
Duoye Diri said it was nothing short of a miracle and that he considers himself to be a miracle governor. He stated that he lost hope of being the governor following the victory of the All Progressives Congress candidate, Mr David Lyon, and the judgment of the Court of Appeal.
He said, “I christen myself a miracle governor. I christen myself as a miracle governor. At a point, everybody gave up. We were the only party (PDP) the APC could not approach. We filed in court. The only place we had hope was in the judiciary.
“The case between the APC and the PDP was thrown out. The APC applauded the Supreme Court and on Thursday, February 13, 2020 the hammer came. We were in the wilderness and a torturous journey but here we are a miracle governor. They attempted to use the so-called federal might to impose somebody on Bayelsa. There were those who said there will be no governor in Bayelsa State. To the glory of God, Bayelsa State has a governor. I am indeed a miracle governor.”
The Supreme Court is due to hear APC’s request for a review of the judgement on Wednesday February 26th.
