Bayelsa State Governor-elect, Chief David Lyon has sent a message of gratitude and praise to Bayelsans for their overwhelming support during the governorship election that held on Saturday.
The All Progressive Congress’ candidate who was declared winner of the Saturday poll by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) also called on other contestants to join him form an all-inclusive government.
Lyon in a statement described his victory as divine to salvage the people of the state from the shackles of guided oppression and internal colonialism.
“Bayelsa is one family, and no individual or group of persons irrespective of their political affiliations or standards can separate us from our collective destiny,” he said.
David Lyon said his victory is a victory for all Bayelsans and extended his hands of fellowship to his closest rival, Senator Douye Diri of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and all other contestants to join him form an all-inclusive government.
“There is no victor no vanquish in politics. We will not segregate ourselves from each other because of political differences. We must unite and move forward together, that is the next level agenda.
“We must integrate our state to the mainstream politics to attract rapid development into our state,” he said.
