Warning to Troublemakers: Stay Away from Bayelsa Election, CDS Cautions



In addition, Musa stated that security agencies have been tasked with putting an end to criminal activities, including sea piracy, illegal bunkering, and pipeline vandalism, in order to increase oil production and enhance the national economy.

“I have come with a strong team to ensure that the state is fully secure and well-protected so that Bayelsa can continue to develop. As Bayelsa develops, I believe the rest of the South-South region and Nigeria as a whole will benefit,” Musa said.

Highlighting the importance of conducting credible and peaceful elections, Musa emphasized that security agencies will be vigilant and any attempt to sabotage the election will not be tolerated. He warned that members of the Armed Forces who compromise the election will face a court-martial.

Governor Diri, welcoming the CDS and his team, urged security agencies to ensure a peaceful and credible governorship election in the state. He stressed the need to prevent acts that could undermine the electoral process and expressed the government’s commitment to support the security agencies in maintaining peace and preventing violence during the poll.

Diri also emphasized the importance of strengthening democracy in the country, with all institutions, particularly the military, working together to build robust democratic institutions.

“Bayelsa is a flashpoint, so you must do everything possible to prevent those sewing military uniforms and plotting to impersonate military officers from undermining the election,” Diri said. “Our goal is to ensure that no lives are lost. The military plays a crucial role in upholding democracy, and we believe that the military will fulfill its duty to make democracy stronger in the coming years.”
