Diri with jaundiced mandate should pray for God’s forgiveness – Sylva

By Ebi Perekeme 

Mr Timipre Sylva, Minister of state for Petroleum Resources and former governor and leader of the APC in Bayelsa state was allegedly amused at public statements credited to the Governor of Bayelsa state, Senator Douye Diri “trying to connect acts of post-election violence in the state to him.”

In a press statement by Julius Bokoru, Special Assistant on Media and Public Affairs to Sylva,
and made available to GbaramatuVoice, said the claims were as absurd and preposterous as they were wrong.

“It is important to note that Sylva, being the statesman and advocate of peace that he has always been, called for calm from all parties both on national TV and papers

‘It is sad that Senator Diri cannot start his governorship on brighter notes, but rather, seeks to continue on the listlessness of his predecessor by obsessing over Sylva,” the statement read.

The statement however advised Diri not to tow that path and not to be haunted by the spectre of Sylva’s shadow.

“Indeed, a snake cannot give birth to anything other than a snake, and while these, including early morning automobile loans, foreshadows a ruinous run, it is sad for a state still grappling with man-made economic sterility.

“The easier thing for someone with a jaundiced mandate to do was to pray for God’s forgiveness, especially for the utterly ambiguous means used in procuring that judgement. It is, however, left for God to decide if the anomaly that happened at the Supreme Court would hold

“It is still too early to start shopping for sparring partners. The simple advice to Senator Diri is that he should haul away drama and focus on the task of governance before him.”
