Further, Governor Douye Diri stated that I like also to applaud the Elders Council for working with the state government. They worked to ensure the peace and security of Bayelsa State. He acknowledged that security cannot be 100% perfect across the whole world.

Still, since we assumed office, and with the support of the Elders, Youths and the citizenry, our security has improved to a very appreciable level. Further, Governor Diri asserted that I believe that we can still do more.

During the meeting with the council of elders in Bayelsa state, the governor of Bayelsa stated that: As a government, we have continued with the legacy projects. These projects include the three Senatorial roads inherited from the previous administration.

He addressed one of the elders in the council during his remarks. He said he was happy to note that your chairman, Rear Admiral Gboribiogha John Jonah, has spoke of many of our projects.

Mention must be made of the Sagbama/Ekeremor road, and on the day we will inaugurate it, I will announce the award of the section to Agge. The Yenagoa-Oporoma-Ukubie and Nembe-Brass roads are progressing.”

We will continue to support you as a council. Additionally, we thank God for the grace upon our elders.  We pray that God will continue to give you that grace and strength,” Governor Diri state
