Bayelsa State Governor, Sen. Douye Diri has expressed confidence that the two party’s candidates in the state’s senatorial bye-election will win the two seats.
Sen. Diri, who spoke to newsmen shortly after casting vote at his polling unit 4, ward 6 at Sampou, Kolokuma/Opokuma Local Government Area, described the PDP candidate and former Governor in the West Senatorial District, Chief Seriake Dickson, and that of the Central Senatorial District, Hon. Moses Cleopas, a former PDP state chairman as incomparable to any other party’s candidate in the bye-election.
According to him, the upper house of the National Assembly is not a place for jokers but people with integrity and understanding who would bring acumen to the Senate and make the state proud.
Diri said” The candidates of PDP are incomparable. We fielded quality candidates and you can see the difference between the PDP candidates and particularly the other candidates. I don’t want to mention the names.
“The Senate is not a place for jokers or people who were dismissed from the service. The Senate is for those with integrity and for those who can comprehend. For those who can bring an argument on the floor that can convince their colleague. And I think the candidate of PDP has all that.
” I can describe the process as being smooth and peaceful. The accreditation and voting enhanced the process instead of waiting for hours.
“It is a state of integrity. I want to call on all our youths and women to conduct themselves in a manner that will bring a positive image to Bayelsa.
