Senator Diri said the non-existent group wanted to cause disaffection in some quarters and described the plot to have failed.

The governor stated that God had always guided his political journey and he was not swayed by any advocacy that was inconsistent with his godly and political principles.

“I am not swayed by such calls. In my political journey, I have always relied on God and not on political jobbers with devious intentions.

“The aim of those behind this act is to cause disaffection but the plot is dead on arrival as I’m not interested in such a Greek gift.

“I remain committed to the mandate given to me by the Bayelsa people and I’m single-mindedly focused on delivering the dividends of democracy to them.

“My administration will not be distracted by those who do not mean well for our state.”
