Governor Okowa while commending the judiciary for upholding the sanctity of the peoples mandate, thanked Bayelsans for their support to the PDP and the Restoration Government of Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson.
“On behalf of the government and people of Delta State, I congratulate you on your hard earned victory at the Bayelsa State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal.

“The tribunal’s affirmation of your election is a fulfillment of the clearly expressed wish of the people of Bayelsa State, I therefore urge you to be humble and magnanimous in victory, remain focused and ever committed to your Restoration Agenda and work for the advancement of the interests of all Bayelsa people irrespective of their political affiliations or loyalties,”
Okowa urged the opposition to accept the tribunal ruling in good fate and cooperate with the Governor to move the state forward.
