“We have been raising the issue of the violent character and person of Timipre Sylva. Over the years, in every election he is involved in, you experience violence, you experience lawlessness, and even in Nembe-Bassambiri, the name and the character behind what is happening in Nembe-Bassambiri is Timipre Sylva”.

Diri is a candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 election in Bayelsa State and is seeking re-election for another four years in office.

Meanwhile, Diri praised the Independent National Electoral Commission for a smooth and fast election, saying that it was an improvement on all the previous elections.

According to him:

“I want to believe that INEC is improving on not only its facilities but the training of its personnel. I am very satisfied with the process and the personnel handling the process”.
