The Bayelsa State Governor, Senator Douye Diri, has lauded Bayelsans, the Independent National Electoral Commissiion (INEC) and the security agencies for the peaceful conduct of last week Saturday’s Bayelsa Central and West senatorial election.

The Governor thanked the people of the state for coming out to vote for his predecessor, Seriake Dickson and the former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party ((PDP), Moses Cleopas, who both emerged winners of the election.

Diri, while thanking Bayelsans for the confidence reposed on the party, maintained that the outcome of the election has shown that voters have made a strong and unequivocal statement.

He said: “It is highly refreshing to note that for the first time, the electoral process in our state was largely peaceful and rancour free and I wish to thank the INEC, security agencies and all stakeholders for lending their goodwill and respecting the will of the people.

“We as a people are determined to evolve a non-violent electioneering culture and I am glad we have risen to the occasion.”
