…donates bus to Church in PH

Bayelsa State Governor, Senator Douye Diri, has said the sister states and people of Bayelsa and Rivers were one and the same and inseparable.

Governor Diri stated this during the service of songs in honour of the late Amaopusenibo Godfrey Brown at the St. Cyprian’s Anglican Church in Port Harcourt, Rivers State on Thursday

The late Brown, who died at the age of 95, is father-in-law to General Overseer of the Royal House of Grace Church, Apostle David Zilly-Aggrey.




A statement by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Daniel Alabrah, quoted him as saying that both states have come a long way and the people must continue to encourage the brotherliness between them.

He stressed that having existed as one in the old Rivers State, Bayelsa and Rivers must deliberately avoid anything that could destroy or jeopardise the relationship.

While expressing condolences on behalf of the government and people of Bayelsa to the Brown family and the St. Cyprian’s Church, Diri eulogised Pa Brown and noted that although he lived to a ripe age, no one was too old to die.
