The Bayelsa State Governor-elect, Chief David Lyon has declared that his administration will focus on providing good leadership and embark on infrastructural development of the state, saying his emergence on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC)and election by the people of the state has placed a huge debt to repay through performance.
Chief David Lyon, who made this known during the New Year thanks-giving marked oil, gas and family thanksgiving service in his home town Olugbobiri community Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of the State, said he was indebted to the people and will ensure that the year 2020 would be one of the best years in the state in the area of providing dividened of democracy to the people.
Lyon, who revealed that his emergence as Governor was an act of God, said he was chosen by God to lead and develop the state, urging the people of the state to pray for his administration to embrace issues of forgiveness, unity, love and peace among various political actors in the state..
According to him,”If anybody had told me that David Lyon, from Olugbobiri community, would be an elected governor of our state, I wouldn’t have believed it. But God has made it possible”.
“Today is the beginning of 2020. By February 14, by the grace of God, I will be sworn in as governor. I believe God will use me to do something for Bayelsa. I started my life with prayers and I know that God will do something for us”.
“We need not be afraid because the task to rule Bayelsa has been given by God, and we must fulfil it; not for David Lyon but for the people. In my campaigns, I specifically maintained that Bayelsa money is not David Lyon’s money. I owe it as a debt. The money for Bayelsa will be used for Bayelsans”.
“I am wishing Bayelsans that 2020 will be one of the best years. We will not go to the Government House to play. When we tackle security, investors will come. I am also asking youths to come together and help in building our state; nobody will help us to develop the state and our communities. This is our time.”
