Governor Douye Diri of Bayelsa State has been urged to honour Bayelsa-born First Class Law Graduate, Miss Ebizi Blessing Eradiri who has not only made Bayelsans proud but the entire Izon nation on her excellent performance at the Niger Delta University and the Nigerian Law School, Lagos Campus.

Peresine urged Governor Diri to take a bold step to correct his earlier mistake of honouring BBNaija third position winner, Nengi as a role model to Bayelsa youths, said the right person to be honoured and awarded as a ‘Role Model’ to Bayelsa youths, to emulate is Miss Ebizi Blessing Eradiri Esq, who has distinguished herself before men and women, and she has also written her name in the Guinness Book of records.

“If Governor Douye Diri places priority on education, and he wants the best for the youths in Bayelsa State educationally, morally, culturally and spiritually, then he must not set a wrong precedence for the youths, but he should set a good precedence for the youths in the State by hosting, honouring and awarding the ‘Role Model of Bayelsa Youths’ Award to Miss Ebizi Blessing Eradiri Esq, who graduated with a cumulative grade point average of 4.75 to become the only First Class graduate from Niger Delta University Law Department, and also bagged First Class Honours at the Nigerian Law School, Lagos Campus”, he stated.

The Peace Ambassador further stated that Ebizi Blessing Eradiri Esq, had received Award on Director General’s Prize for Attaining First Class Honours; Overall Best Graduand, Faculty of Law Award; Overall Best Graduand, Niger Delta University Award; Customary Court of Appeal, Bayelsa State Award for Best Graduand; amongst others, and he looked forward to seeing the Diri administration honouring her with a well deserved Award and assist her financially and other genuine means in order for her to fulfill her dream in the legal profession.

“As I congratulate our Miracle Governor on his victory at the Supreme Court yesterday, and appeal to him passionately to take my pieces of advice to give Ebizi State Honour seriously, I also wish to use this medium to congratulate my learned Izon sister Ebizi Blessing Eradiri Esq, who is currently an Associate at Templars”, he stated.
