Governor Diri says his administration has deepen democracy in Bayelsa

Bayelsa State Governor, Douye Diri, has said his administration contributed to the growth of democracy in Nigeria during the recent general election.

Governor Diri stated this during the state’s executive council meeting in Government House, Yenagoa.

The Governor, while reviewing the performance of his People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the different elections, said neither the government nor the PDP interfered with the activities of opposition parties.

Rather, he said, the PDP candidates went to the people and spoke to them about his administration’s policies and projects that are impacting their lives.

He challenged anyone analysing the results of the elections in the state to do so with facts and figures and not to speculate.

While informing the cabinet members of his clearance by the screening committee of the PDP to contest the November eleven governorship election in the state, the Governor urged them to continue to be committed to their jobs, saying that governance would go side by side with politics.

He thanked the Exco members for their dedication and hardwork, which resulted in the victory of the party’s candidates in the last elections.
