PDP promises Bayelsans better deal



THE governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), in the forthcoming November 16 election in Bayelsa State, Senator Douye Diri, has flayed the federal government led All Progressive Congress Party (APC) for not bringing much to bear  in Bayelsa State for the past five years.

  Addressing the people of Amassoma during the campaign rally in Amassoma Community in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of the State, Senator Diri promised to tackle the challenges of the Niger Delta University, Amassoma and review its workers’ problem.

  According to him, if elected into power as somebody that has served the state in various capacities; infrastructure for the socio-economic growth of Bayelsa State would top his list of priorities.

  Diri, who said he has worked closely with the present Governor, Seriake Dickson, for the past seven years knows the challenges of the people of Amassoma, a situation his administration would change for good once voted into office.

  According to him, he would continue with the road project that leads to Oporoma the headquarters of Southern Ijaw Local Government Area with a view to opening up the area for rapid economic growth and development.

  “The current governor has consulted with me that he will award the bridge contract that leads to Oporoma before he leaves office by February 14, 2020, and if he is unable to complete it before he leaves, I, Senator Diri would award the contract for the bridge.”

  He also assured the people that he would partner with his running mate Lawrence Erhujawkpo to bring succor to the flood-affected people in Amassoma and its neighbouring communities.

  He said given the mammoth crowd that graced the PDP campaign rally, it is obvious that   Amassoma is PDP and that the PDP is popular in Amassoma.

  “There is no sign that somebody or anybody has decamped from PDP in Amassoma from the large turnout. Don’t let them deceive you. Vote for one of your owns that will look at your challenges and issues and solve them.”

  Speaking earlier, the speaker of the Bayelsa State House of Assembly Rt. Hon. Monday Obolo said Bayelsans should seek for a government that goes into office with the intention of developing Southern Ijaw and the entire state, saying only the PDP can make this happen.

  Also speaking, member representing Southern Ijaw Constituency 1 in the State Assembly, Bonny Ayah, stated that there is no amount of intimidation and threat that will make the people of Amassoma succumb to ‘federal might’.

  Highlight of the occasion was the presentation of award to Senator Douye Diri by the PDP Students Movement in Amassoma.
