Governor Douye Diri,
United Nations Peace Ambassador Arch. Miebi Bribena, on Sunday 7 June expressed confidence in the capacity of Governor Douye Diri, to make Bayelsa one of the leading economies in the country.
Bribena who spoke on Diri’s leadership style on the sidelines of his 61st birthday anniversary called on the people of the state to be patient and as well support his laudable programmes.
He disclosed that one of the programmes of the Prosperity administration is to divest the economy of the state from oil and gas to Agriculture.
Arch. Bribena added this would boost the Internally Generated Revenue and as well make the state less independent on FAAC monthly allocation.
He described the governor as an astute politician whose steadfastness, maturity, understanding and peace loving nature has endeared him to the hearts of the people of the state.
He expressed delight over his extreme simplicity yet overtly charismatic personality.
Arc. Bribena acknowledged his contribution to the socio- economic development of Bayelsa state in his over 100 days in office.
He, therefore, prayed God to grant him long life and sound health to pilot the affairs of the state.
Arc. Bribena added that Governor Diri would live to see his great grandchildren
