Bayelsa Poll: Defeating Diri ‘ll be tough but possible — Daunemigha, LP Gov aspirant


By Henry Ojelu

A governorship aspirant under the Labour Party, LP in Bayelsa state, Hon.Donald Daunemigha has said that defeating the incumbent Governor, Douye Diri in the coming governorship election might be difficult but possible depending on the wishes of residents of the state.

Hon Daunemigha who is a former appointee of Governor Diri and an Ex- Executive Chairman of Ekeremor Local Government Area, stated this when he submitted his governorship expression of interest and nomination form at his party secretariat.

The former Council boss, who had before now aspired to represent Bayelsa West Senatorial District, said he has all it takes to move Bayelsa State to enviable heights.

He said, “After several meetings with stakeholders and wide consultation with people from different parts of our beloved State, I picked up the forms to join the Gubernatorial race in the forthcoming election.”

According to him, running against a sitting Governor and former boss may be difficult, but God, he insisted is the sole determinant of who gets power at any given time.

“I believe strongly that power actually comes from God and in a democracy, it is the people that holds the power or the force of the election to put you in any office.”

“I’ve got what it takes to take Bayelsa State to enviable heights and that’s why I’m in the race for the Governorship Election. I promise to serve our people with the best of my ability, create jobs for our teeming youths and reduce the dependence on Federal allocation.”
