Bayelsa State Governor Douye Diri has appealed to voters to vote for an honest and sincere leader who is focused on the state’s development at the November 11, 2023 governorship election.
Governor Diri gave the admonition at the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) campaign rallies in Ogbia local government area.

Diri, who was accompanied by his wife, Dr Gloria, and his deputy, Senator Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo, appreciated the people for their support.
At the Kolo rally, the caretaker committee chairman of Ogbia council, Mizodome Ibu, thanked the governor for the projects in the area and promised to ensure that the PDP records massive votes in the area.
Others who spoke were the senator representing Bayelsa East, Chief Benson Agadaga, a former House of Representatives member for the Ogbia federal constituency, Fred Obua, member representing Ogbia Constituency 3 in the House of Assembly, Michael Ogbara, former Assembly member, Naomi Ogoli, the PDP zonal legal adviser, George Turnah among others.
The highpoint of the campaign was the decoration of Diri and his deputy by the paramount ruler of Elebele community, His Royal Highness David Osene Osene and his council of chiefs with the chieftaincy titles of Ogimamema 1 and Ogimamama 2 respectively.
Also scores of defectors from the APC equally joined the PDP at the rallies.
