Former Deputy National Publicity of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank, has knocked the Governor of Bayelsa state, Douye Diri, for rejecting a congratulatory message from a former Managing Director of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC),Timi Alaibe, following His victory at the Supreme Court judgement.
Frank in a statement on Tuesday said the Governor should not forget that Bayelsans did not vote for him at the November 16, 2019 gubernatorial election in the state. He said Diri’s conduct has portrayed him as an inexperienced politician “not worthy to hold a public office.”
“Jittery governor Diri became the governor through a back door. Instead of him to appreciate God’s faithfulness in his life, he has turned himself to the Biblical Bayelsa’s Nebuchadnezzar by openly rejecting a hand of fellowship extended to him by the much loved Timi Alaibe.
“Governor Diri should not forget so soon that Bayelsans did not Vote for him as governor because he was not their choice but Court and providence did.
“Diri has forgotten that four years will end before he knows it. The governor’s proud heart will soon dissapoint him. If Diri was not jitry, how come he couldn’t appoint his Commissioners months after Court declared him governor?
“By this singular act of ungratefulness, Douye Diri should prepare to give account of all his steps and policies everyday. The Bayelsans will hold him accountable for each step he takes henceforth.”
