The Bayelsa State Governor, Douye Diri has reacted to the Supreme Court ruling affirming him as the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the November 2019 gubernatorial election in the State.
The governor described the victory as God’s divine intervention in the affairs of the ‘Prosperity Government’.
It will be recalled that the Supreme Court had nullified the suit by a governorship aspirant on the platform of PDP, Timi Alaibe, challenging Diri during the last election in the state.
However, the suit was dismissed by the court after the appellant withdrew the case.
Reacting to this, the governor who was represented by his deputy, Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo, stated that the ruling had demonstrated the faith in the judiciary.
He said: “We want to give all the glory, adoration, thanks and praises to God for what He has done for us again.
“This victory again shows that power comes from God alone. We also want to thank God for giving us, mortal and sinful people, the opportunity to serve this state.
“As you are aware, there has been a lot of hype about this case. But we thank God, He has proved His supremacy over the affairs of men.
“Let me on behalf of the Miracle Gov. Douye Diri appreciate the uprightness of the Supreme Court and the determination and incorruptibility of the Judiciary.
“This is because right from the Federal High Court, Owerri, it has been the same song that he has no case.”
