The national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Prince Uche Secondus, has suggested what the Bayelsa chapter of the party should do next to promote peace in the state.

The PDP chairman added that this move will no doubt, return peace not just for the party, but also for the entire people of Bayelsa, TVC News reports.

Diri, in his reaction to the Supreme Court's verdict on the state, said that he is willing to extend a hand of friendship and reconciliation to all PDP members who deserted the party after the election.
The senator said that what is important is building the state with the spirit of unity by all and sundry, irrespective of ethnic or political differences.

He said: “Being in APC does not remove you as my brother of Bayelsa state. Whether you are Nembe, Okpia, Sabama, or Southern Ijaw, that is the region that God has brought us together and so, I am extending my olive branch even to those of my brothers and sisters in APC.”
