The new governor of Bayelsa state, Douye Diri has described himself as a ‘miracle governor’ following the manner in which he emerged governor of the oil-rich state.
Speaking with newsmen in Abuja he stated that he christened himself the new name because his victory at the Apex court was divine.
“I christen myself a miracle governor. At a point, everybody gave up. We were the only party (PDP) the APC could not approach. We filed in court. The only place we had hope was in the judiciary.
“The case between APC and APC was thrown out. The APC applauded the Supreme Court and on Thursday, February 13, 2020, the hammer came,” Diri said.
He added:” We were in the wilderness and a torturous journey but here we are a miracle governor. They attempted to use the so-called federal might to impose somebody on Bayelsa.
“There were those who said there will be no governor in Bayelsa State. To the glory of God Bayelsa State has a governor. I am indeed a miracle governor.”
