Senator Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo


The Senator Representing Bayelsa East Senatorial District, Senator Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo has exceptionally performance well at the National Assembly, and patriotic, foresighted and development- oriented-people of the area want him to contest for a second tenure to render his rare selfless service to the people.

He was recognized by all well- meaningful development-oriented democrats in the area and beyond as one of the few contemporary Nigerians that have demonstrated progressive credentials through hard work, sagacity, selfless service and commitment towards the improvement of the socio-economic and political well-being of the people.

It is noted that within the short period in office, the Senator has fulfilled his electioneering promises to the people and still working assiduously, noting the developmental challenges in his state, Niger Delta region and Nigeria in general.

Undoubtedly, Senator Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo is a man of unparalleled achievements. He is a bridge builder and helper of the down trodden.

He has stamped his foot on the sand of time. That was why visionary constituents always extol him for actualizing his electioneering campaign promises and according high premium to the welfare of the people, and infrastructural development amongst others.

The people who have no skeleton hiding in their cupboard described Senator Degi-Eremienyo as a Nigerian who has impacted many lives and greatly contributed to improving the polity.

During the occasion of his 63rd  birthday,  many and sundry joined  the family members, friends and political associates in rejoicing with him for marking the day, considering his unparalleled achievements.

Indeed, Senator Degi- Eremienyo has never fail any election since his entry into politics.

People thanked him for sincerely devoting his life to public service with extraordinary courage and diligence and describing him as an architect of modern Bayelsa East Senatorial District effective representation.

This was not unconnected with his exceptional leadership, courage, forthrightness and diligence in providing exemplary and broadminded leadership for the people.

But, it is ludicrous to sight on the social media, a story with the caption” Ex-Militant Leader Kicks Against Biobarakuma’s Re-Election Bid” accredited to one Mr Igoniko Oduma, on April 26, 2022 online defamatory publication of Independent against the senator at UGHELLI in Delta state.

It behooves necessary to state here emphatically that Senator Degi-Eremienyo has all the chances to be returned unopposed in 2023 under the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC).

Therefore, those who think media campaign of blackmail and calumny may enable them to achieve their inordinate, do or die affair, selfish political career should waste their limited resources to sponsoring defamatory stories that would yield them no interest.

Anyone who think that he is a sacred cow should continue to propagate falsehood and face the consequences.

Already, scores of different organizations, youths, Chiefs and women organizations, the elites and electorates are waiting to cast their votes for Senator Degi-Eremienyo during next year’s election.

In a democratic system of government anybody who is qualify can sell his manifesto to the electorates, rather than applying selfish tendencies against the wishes of the people.

Senator Degi-Eremienyo for now is their choice, therefore no amount of blackmail can debar his victory at the poll because he is constitutionally empowered to contest for a second tenure. After all, people are contesting for 3rd, 4th and even seventh tenure in Bayelsa and Delta states and the electorates are prepared to vote for them.

Senator Degi-Eremienyo deserves a second tenure. Therefore, all and sundry should rally around him, as he will continue to carry all along but they should wait for their turn in next elections.
