Governor of Bayelsa State, Douye Diri, on Saturday claimed that Nigerians are tired of the All Progressives Congress' domination in the country.
Diri made the claim at the Mahmud Ribadu Square in Jimeta, Yola North Local Government Area of Adamawa State as chairman of the PDP National Electoral Committee for the conduct of the state congress of the party.
Speaking through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Daniel Alabrah, the governor alleged that Nigerians cannot wait to vote in the Peoples Democratic Party in 2023.
The PUNCH quoted Diri as saying, “Nigerians are tired of the APC and are waiting for the PDP to take over. I assure you that come 2023, PDP will take over the presidency of our country.
“I have been reading about the first flyover in the North East but yesterday I drove on it. We are pleased as a party that the governor of Adamawa State is performing and doing well. You know the PDP governors, from the North to the South, are the best performing in Nigeria.”
Speaking further, Diri hailed the PDP governors across the North and South as the best performers in the country.
The governor added that the PDP was poised to take over power at the centre in 2023.
Diri spoke fondly of the Governor of Adamawa, Adamu Fintiri and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar who were among the delegates that voted at the congress which produced a legal practitioner, Tahir Shehu, as the state chairman of the party.
According to Diri, Fintiri is one of the “shining lights” in the party, who is making remarkable developmental imprints on Adamawa.
The governor urged his party members to remain steadfast and united to ensure PDP returns to power in the next general elections.
Subsequently, Diri hailed the former vice president for his 'sterling qualities' and leadership in the PDP and Nigeria.
Speaking about the congress, Diri described it as peaceful, friendly and convivial as it showed that the PDP was united in Adamawa.
He equally commended the Independent National Electoral Commission whose state Resident Electoral Commissioner and his team were present to observe the exercise.
