Bayelsa State Governor, Senator Douye Diri, has called on politicians in the state to be tolerant and shun divisive and violent politics ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Speaking during a crossover inter-denominational service held at his Sampou community in Kolokuma/Opokuma Local Government Area of the state, the governor said the warning became necessary given the destructive brand of politicking of some politicians in the state ahead of the electioneering process. 

He recalled how he emerged as governor without involving in violent politics or trying to bring anybody down. 

He also called on the youth of the state to resist being used as tools of violence by politicians during elections, while urging them to take advantage of the policies and programmes of his administration to better themselves. 

Diri also reaffirmed his administration’s determination to continue to create the enabling environment for businesses to thrive and called on private investors to take advantage of the business potential in the state and the prevailing conducive security atmosphere.
