Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Saawua Terzungwe

The Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) has ex­pressed shock over the death of for­mer gover­nor of Bayelsa State, Chief Diepr­eye Alamieyeseigha, de­scrib­ing the de­vel­op­ment as deeply sad­den­ing.

A state­ment yesterday by PDP na­tional pub­lic­ity sec­re­tary, Chief Olisa Me­tuh, said the for­mer gover­nor made im­mense con­tri­bu­tions and sac­ri­fices to­wards the unity, sta­bil­ity and de­vel­op­ment of Bayelsa State and Nige­ria, both as a se­cu­rity man and a politi­cian.

“Chief Alamieyeseigha was a true demo­crat; hum­ble leader, bril­liant ad­min­is­tra­tor who had ex­tra­or­di­nary love for his peo­ple. He was an out­stand­ing party-man, who, de­spite his tra­vails, re­mained loyal to the PDP at state and na­tional lev­els to the very end,” the PDP said.
