Bayelsa: Diri Duoye sends message to PDP member who decamped to the APC

Senator Diri Duoye, the Bayelsa State governor-elect, has extended an olive branch to PDP member who decamped to the APC.

This comes after a Supreme Court ruling declared him the winner of the Bayelsa gubernatorial election and sacked David Lyon of the APC as governor-elect.

Addressing reporters in the aftermath of the ruling, Diri called on former PDP members who dumped the party to return o they can build Bayelsa State together.

“The members of PDP, who out of one thing or the other got angry and left us to APC, I’m waving the olive branch, please, come back.

“We have to build Bayelsa state together. I’m also calling on my brothers in APC they are Bayelsans, we cannot continue to be in disunity.

“Being in APC does not remove you as my brother of Bayelsa state. Whether you are Nembe, Okpia, Sabama, or Southern Ijaw, that is the region that God has brought us together and so, I am extending my olive branch even to those of my brothers and sisters in APC,” he said.
