Bayelsa State Governor Seriake Dickson has said that any person who will rule the state must be one who fears God and appreciates human affairs.
The governor said this during the last day of the three-day Prayer and Fasting programme organised by the state for the 2019 Gubernatorial Election at the Ecumenical Centre, Yenagoa.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media Relations, Fidelis Soriwei, the governor noted that the state will never again be ruled by cult elements, crude and brutal human beings, whose aim is bloodletting, killings and violence.
He said, “Let me remind us of some of the very powerful pronouncements that our men of God and fathers of our faith have led us to declare for the past seven years and still counting. One of the most important is that only a man after God’s heart, not a man who is not destined by God, who wants to take it by violence, no such person shall ascend the position of governor.
“No one who does not subscribe, understand, submit to the authority and divine mandate of God over our lives shall ascend the seat of the governor”.
