Published

on

Residents of Yenagoa woke up on Tuesday morning to witness  increased security around Government House and strategic areas of the capital in anticipation of Supreme Court judgement on Bayelsa governorship poll.

A correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria in Yenagoa reports that all the roads leading to Onopa, the seat of government were blocked by armed security men.

Motorists and other commuters were forced to seek alternative routes to their destinations.

The Supreme Court will deliver judgment on Monday on the legal tussle between Gov. Seriake Dickson of the PDP, who was declared winner of the poll and Chief Timipre Sylva, the APC candidate who challenged the victory.

Sylva had approached the election petitions tribunal which upheld Dickson’s election.

Not satisfied by the verdict of the tribunal, the APC candidate took his case to the Appeal Court which also affirmed the decision of the tribunal.

However, inspite of the heavy presence of security men deployed in strategic locations, the capital remains calm.

DSP Asinim Butswat told NAN in a telephone interview that the deployment was to ensure the prevailing peace in the capital is maintained.

Taking to Facebook on Saturday night, Kemepadei said Christians have continued to allow religious entrepreneurs to mislead them.

His post below:

John 4:21-24

Jesus said, the time has come when you don’t have to worship God in the mountains nor the synagogue for God is a Spirit: and they that worship God must worship in spirit and in truth.

If you like continue to allow religious entrepreneurs to mislead you and enrich themselves, we will all be judged according to our deeds and not according to our beliefs.

God does not live in religious homes, your everyday prayer and fasting without application of good conduct is self deceit.

Call me all manner of Evil names, call me a juju worshiper, call me an idolator, but God is the final judge of all our actions, and in the end, it is our actions that will determine our position with God.

– Apostle Bodmas Prince Kemepadei
