Diri Tells Sylva, “You’re Good At Crying Wolf When There Isn’t Any”

Governor Douye Diri has responded to Chief Timipre Sylva’s claim that he was spying on him and plans to unleash violence on him.

According to a press release signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Bayelsa State Governor, Daniel Alabrah, Governor Douye Diri is a well-known pacifist and an advocate of politics without bitterness. He has said he won’t spill blood to get re-elected into office.

“It is on record that for the first time in the history of elections in Bayelsa State, the February/March general election in the country was so peaceful that there were no reported cases of bloodshed and killings unlike in the past. This was due to the governor’s peaceful disposition that has permeated the state’s politics.

“Chief Sylva is good at crying wolf where there is none. Going by his antecedents, we believe he is the one planning what he is accusing the governor of. But it is better to ignore the rantings of a drowning man seeking straws to hang on to or trying to make excuses for his failed governorship project.

“His rejection by his party chieftains, his Nembe/Brass people, and indeed the Bayelsa electorate is total, the statement concluded.
