Man treks from Calabar to Yenagoa for new Bayelsa Governor Diri

Murtala Anas Jos, an indigene of Plateau State and staunch supporter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nigeria’s main opposition party, has trekked from Calabar, Cross River State to Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital to celebrate the victory of Bayelsa Governor Diri.

The Witness reports that Jos, who arrived Yenagoa on Wednesday, February 26, said it took him eight days to complete the journey, adding that he undertook the task to mark the victory of his party and Governor Douye Diri at the Supreme Court.

Jos said having followed the political trajectory of Diri, he was happy that the senator against all odds later emerged as an incumbent governor of Bayelsa.

The PDP supporter claimed that the main opposition party remained the only party that understood the problems of the country and knew how to address the yearnings and aspirations of the people.

Bayelsa Governor Diri

His words: “I came from Calabar to Bayelsa State. It took me like eight days trekking to reach Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.

“I decided to do this because of the love I have for my party, the PDP and to celebrate with Senator Douye Diri over his victory at the Supreme Court and subsequent swearing-in as the Bayelsa State governor.

“This act is to show how I love and cherish my party, PDP, and to encourage the distinguished gentleman, who has come to work for prosperity, growth and development of Bayelsa State.

“I have never had any interaction with the governor not discussed with him but I’ve been following him since his days in the House of Representatives and Senate, and I know he is the type of leader Bayelsa needs at this moment.

“Though some hoodlums attacked me between Akwa Ibom and Rivers, they snatched my phones but I was not discouraged, because I was eager to celebrate my party’s victory in Bayelsa State”.
