Diri spoke during a thanksgiving service that rounded off the third session of the 8th Synod of the Niger Delta West Diocese at St Peter’s Anglican Church, Nedugo-Gbarain, in Yenagoa Council of the state.

Aligning his remarks with the theme of the synod: ‘Christ Is Our Cornerstone,’ the governor, who was represented by his Deputy, Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo, noted that giving his administration a second term would enable it to consolidate and record more achievements for the state.

He stressed the need for Bayelsans, and the Church, to educate the people on benefits of maintaining a team that is doing well on several fronts.
Diri pointed out that although Bayelsa has not fully actualised the dreams of its founding fathers, it had made tremendous progress, especially in the last few years.

According to the governor, the state is witnessing drastic reduction in unnecessary deaths, arising from cultism, drug abuse and other criminal tendencies. CONTINUE READING>>>

While thanking the Church for its continued support, he, however, berated Christian leaders, who see Christianity as a competition rather than love and constant gratitude to God for His faithfulness.
