The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye ; the Bayelsa State Governor , Duoye Diri ; his Deputy Governor , Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo; and former Governor Seriake Dickson , gathered in Yenagoa , the state capital, on Sunday , on the occasion of the state ’s annual thanksgiving service .
The dignitaries were joined by other government officials and respected elder statesmen including former President Goodluck Jonathan, a representative of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo , the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Uche Secondus , amongst others .
Dickson , who made this known via his verified Twitter handle , congratulated his successor and his deputy on their various electoral victories this year .
“ This is the beauty of the continuity that we fought and worked hard for . This was what God did in his own miraculous way for all of us and it is marvellous in our eyes,” he tweeted .
The PUNCH had earlier reported that Diri said he visited 78 – year -old Adeboye during his election travails and the cleric had assured him that he would recover his mandate.
Diri , who came second in the last year ’ s governorship election in the state , was declared the elected governor of the state in a subsequent Supreme Court judgment disqualifying the All Progressives Congress ’s candidate David Lyon who earlier emerged the winner of the poll .
Diri ’s victory has been challenged a number of times but the Bayelsa State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja had at different times affirmed him as the duly elected governor of the state.
