Chief Judge of the  State, Justice Kate Abiri, administered the oath of office for the Bayelsa governor, and his Deputy, Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo.

The swearing-in ceremony which took place at the Government House, Yenagoa, was a huge celebration among party supporters.

In an inauguration address,  Diri declared that he would always work to achieve peace, love and prosperity for the people.

He described the swearing in day, as “a day made by God and marvelous in the eye of the people of Bayelsa”.

“I have been sworn in today as your new governor, my advice is that we have to be magnanimous in victory.

“We have to forget the bitterness and  acrimony, because if we kill ourselves, who are we going to lead? Of course, we are not going to  lead animals.

“I, therefore, bring to you message of love, hope and prosperity for Bayelsa.

“Let us eschew all the bitterness and acrimony and learn to love ourselves irrespective of political parties,” Diri stated.
