Former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has stated that he is optimistic that the newly sworn-in governor of Bayelsa state, Douye Diri would deliver because he knows his ability from working as a commissioner in the state when he served as governor.
Speaking in a new statement, the former president charged the new governor to use the opportunity to work for humanity and write his name in gold.
”As Governor, the responsibility of building hope and sustaining peace across the State now lies on your shoulders,” he said.
“I urge you to always bear in mind that you are the Governor of all Bayelsans and to seize this moment of glory to build bridges of unity by entrenching a culture of love, fairness and justice in our polity.
“Your journey to Creek Haven is a divine one, so I advise you to use the position to do good to humanity and pursue the development of the State in order to write your name in gold.
“You have worked with me before as a commissioner, so I am without doubt that you will live up to the expectations of our people.”
