Respect Supreme Court Judgment in Bayelsa — By Annkio Briggs


The burning and destroying of Bayelsa state and killing of fellow Bayelsans does not achieve anything.


Douye Diri and David Lyon are both sons of Bayelsa and Ijaw Nation. Either one has a right to govern Bayelsa State. All Ijaw sons and daughters not minding state of original are committed to love, protect and honor Bayelsa State. Bayelsa State, Ijaw Nation, and Niger Delta are not for sale to any person or people for any reason. 2020 is not 1914.


Since the creation of Bayelsa State out of old Rivers State Bayelsa has survived a lot of political and greedy manipulations such as the arrest, k-legged impeachment, arrest, and jailing of the late, much loved and missed Governor-General of Ijaw Nation DSP Alamieyeshiya. Bayelsa, Ijaw nation and indeed Niger Delta have survived and will continue to survive.


Just as the result of the November 2019 governorship election of Bayelsa did not favor everyone’s hopes and expectations the Supreme Court judgment of 13th of Feb 2020 on the governorship elections of Nov 2019 will not favor everyone yet that is not reason enough for strangers to instigate Bayelsans to burn Bayelsa and kill Bayelsans.


In the past 5 years, the leadership of APC has bitterly regretted that it won no Niger Delta oil-producing states, and has threatened to take oil-producing states by any and all means available.


We the people of Rivers State and the government of Gov. Wike in the past 5 years have endured the wrath of persons who believe they must take over Rivers State, we are living witnesses to the mindset of politicians of opposition, who are prepared to kill sons and daughters of Rivers state in this hunger to have an oil-producing state.


In 2019 people of Rivers state were brutally murdered in the determination that the APC political party must win Rivers states despite the fact that the APC had no governorship candidate in the 2019 elections.


As a committed daughter of Rivers State, the Niger Delta Region and of Ijaw nation l appeal to my people the Ijaw people of the only Ijaw state to never forget that Bayelsa state is their state and no one else’s state.


The burning and destroying of Bayelsa state and killing of fellow Bayelsans does not achieve anything.


Bayelsa and Ijaw nation need to heal and move forward not backward.


Bayelsa is not at war with herself, instead, greedy strangers have been at war with her, using her people on each side of the political divide.


No man or woman should make Bayelsa about themselves, Bayelsa is about Bayelsans and Ijaw nation.
