The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last election, Atiku Abubakar, has congratulated Sen. Douye Diri over the Supreme Court judgment on the Bayelsa governorship election.

Abubakar also congratulated Sen. Diri’s his running mate, Lawrence Ewhrujakpor and the PDP.

 

In a statement issued on Thursday, February 13 in Abuja Abubakar said:

“The Lords Justices have given us another opportunity to show Nigerians that power belongs to the people, and we must make good use of this opportunity.

“Diri had cause to visit me before the elections and received my blessings and counsel.

“I am fully satisfied that he has what it takes to make Bayelsa the ‘glory of all lands. His intellect, personality, and character, are a credit to Bayelsa and the PDP,” he said.

“Finally, I urge the supreme court to show consistency in its judgments and find the resolve to always deliver just judgments no matter whose ox is gored.

“The people of Nigeria are behind the apex court in whatever they do to free themselves from the dominance of dictatorial forces,” he added.

Stating that he received the verdict of the court, declaring the candidate of the PDP, Diri, as the duly elected governor of the state with gladness, Abubakar called on all the people of Bayelsa to make peace with the recent past, and embrace the future together, united in the mission to transform the state into a haven of peace and prosperity.
