Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi, on Tuesday congratulated the Bayelsa State Governor-elect, David Lyon.
Amaechi told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja that the victory was a testimony of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administrative transformations.
He lauded the APC-led Federal Government for genuinely working to alleviate poverty and tackle litany of economic challenges confronting the nation, which according to him, is yielding results.
The minister, who is also an APC chieftain in the South-south, described the victory as the beginning of the party’s future glories in the geopolitical zone.
“We thank God and congratulations to all the victors,’’ Amaechi said.
NAN reports that the APC gubernatorial candidate, David Lyon, won in six of the state’s eight local government areas.
He defeated his closest rival, Sen. Douye Diri of the Peoples Democratic Party, who captured only two local governments.
