Bayelsa: Jonathan, Diri, Sylva canvass votes

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has backed Governor Douye Diriโ€™s bid for a second tenure in the upcoming Bayelsa State governorship election on Saturday.

ย He said that Diri should be encouraged to complete a second term in office because of the stability of the state, according to a statement issued on Tuesday by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Daniel Alabrah.

Jonathan spoke when members of the Peoples Democratic Party Bayelsa National Governorship Campaign Council alongside governors, former governors of the party and National Assembly members and other stakeholders paid him a visit at his Yenagoa residence.

The party leaders visited the state for the grand finale of Diriโ€™s re-election campaign rally.

The former President said he was in touch with Diri and his activities in the state.

He said Bayelsa had made progress in the area of security and infrastructural development under Diri.

ย โ€œI have been in touch with our governor and I believe he should be encouraged to do his eight years. He has been able to stabilise the state.
