Bayelsa: Only God reigns supreme, says Diri at thanksgiving service

Governor Douye Diri of Bayelsa State during the service Kayode Oyero Governor Douye Diri of Bayelsa State said on Sunday that only God reigns supreme, noting that supreme judgment can only come from Him. Diri and his wife, who were today at a Thanksgiving Service at the State House in Yenagoa, the state capital, danced and appreciated God for giving them a ‘supreme’ miracle. The governor, who presented his Certificate of Return to the former President Goodluck Jonathan in Yenagoa on Saturday, said God has been a vital part of his electoral journey and eventual electoral victory. The Supreme Court on Thursday sacked the APC governor-elect in Bayelsa State, David Lyon, and his running mate, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo, and pronounced the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidates, Douye Diri, and his deputy, Lawrence Ewrujakpor, as the winners of the November 2019 governorship election held in the state. The apex court had found irregularities in the credentials of the ex-APC deputy governor-elect in Bayelsa State, Degi-Eremienyo, and annulled the joint ticket of both Lyon and Degi-Eremienyo. The apex court then ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to issue fresh certificates to the candidates of the party with the next highest votes and with the required constitutional spread of votes in the results of the election, which is the PDP’s Diri and his deputy governor-elect, Lawrence Ewrudjakpo. INEC on Friday morning issued a Certificate of Return to Diri in compliance with the verdict of the Supreme Court.
