The Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, has congratulated the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Bayelsa State, David Lyon, on his victory during the November 16 election.
Omo-Agege in a statement through his spokesperson, Yomi Odunuga, appreciated Bayelsans for voting for the APC candidate, he promised that they would not be disappointed.
He also lauded the state and national leadership of the APC particularly the National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole; Minister of State for Petroleum, Timipre Sylva and other leaders who contributed to the victory of the party during the election.
He added that the victory is a sign that the victory of APC during the last General Election was not a fluke.
Omo-Agege reminded Lyon that the people of Bayelsa state expects an unreserved commitment to delivering the dividends of democracy to them.
He charged aggrieved candidates to seek redress in court rather than resort to violence.
He expressed happiness for the APC in Bayelsa for finally breaking the jinx by becoming the second state in the South-South after Edo to come under APC’s control.
“With this development and the actualisation of the Next Level Agenda of the APC-led administration, it is certain that our party will clinch more states in the South-South geo-political zone in future elections.
“Like I have always said, it is possible for the APC to rule in the South-South beyond Edo. And I have been proven right with the final results from Bayelsa.
“This goes to show that with determination and tenacity of purpose, we can overcome what seems insurmountable.”
Recall that Naija News reported that Lyon scored 352, 552 votes to win in the election while his closest rival, Diri, of the PDP, polled 143, 172 votes.
