Former President Goodluck Jonathan has praised Governor Douye Diri for his inclusive approach to governance and reverence for God.

Speaking at the Ecumenical Centre in Yenagoa, during the second anniversary thanksgiving of Governor Diri’s administration, Dr. Jonathan noted that God has reasons for everything under the sun as humans are instruments in His hands.

He tasked the Governor to use the God-given opportunity to better the lots of people of the state.

The former President also commended Governor Diri for encouraging a peaceful co-existence of Bayelsans across party lines and prayed God to give him the wisdom to bring more development to people of the state.

In a remark, Governor Diri said he will forever be thankful to God for what He has done for him and the state.

Governor Diri recalled the trying times few hours before his swearing-in and how God miraculously turned things around for his good.

He called on people of the State to unite and shun divisive politics, and support to move Bayelsa forward.

Speaking on behalf of the PDP Governors, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State rejoiced with their colleague and people of the State.

He commended Governor Diri for his strides in office and urged him to continue to work for the development of the state.

Also, PDP National Chairman, Senator Iyorcha Ayu, said time had proven that the party performed at the presidency, saying the change mantra that the opposition sold to Nigerians has had no positive impact.

While noting that the PDP Governors are celebrated, Senator Ayu also lauded Governor Diri and other past PDP Governors of the state for contributing their quota to its development.
