The Founder of Diaspora For Diri (D4D) Initiative,Dr Rosalyn Dressman,has called on the people of Nembe to vote for somebody that knows the importance and the economic value of the Nembe Road and not one that said there's no economic value.

In her words''We will give our votes to somebody who knows that Nembe has economic value,that person is the one that will get our votes and that person is Senator Douye Diri.

"The governor has been doing a lot, not only for the people of Nembe community but for the whole Bayelsa state. You can imagine somebody says Nembe has no economic value and this same person wants my vote. You can not get my vote, you cannot get the vote of everybody that is supporting Diaspora for Diri (D4D).

"As everybody knows, Bayelsa is a PDP state and Nembe is totally PDP, it does not matter what he (opposition) said outside there. Nembe is totally PDP, the arena is full, no way to go in and out. Everybody is home, you know campaign is from grassroots.

The founder D4D believes that the people of Nembe will never fall to the antics of the opposition who's agenda is violence, adding that the people of Nembe are wise and will vote massively for Douye Diri for second tenure.

In his remark,the Nembe Local Government Area Coordinator of D4D, Mr. Steven Ayebanowa,described Senator Douye Diri, as the people's choice who has already won the hearts of Bayelsians in all the local governments with his developmental strides,henced needles of any contender irrespective of where the opposition is from.

"In D4D, we are the Diaspora people and we come to understand what Senator Diri has been doing for the eight local government areas of Bayelsa state, which has been a massive one.

Ayebanowa,called on all and sundry as well as D4D members to come together to support and vote for Diri giving credence to the fact that those in the community cannot do it alone without the support of others.

"We believe that If we come together as D4D as Dispora people to tell our people that they should know that it's not only the community can do it, no matter where you are,you can come and support the Diri government because in our various areas if you are not from Bayelsa state you cannot vote.

"You cannot be in Lagos and vote for Diri, you can only come to Bayelsa state to vote for him for his great works in the state.
