In a statement by a Concerned Bayelsa Central Citizen, Senator Kombowei Benson was also advised to leave the Bayelsa State Governor, H.E, Senator Douye Diri, out of his certificate trials.

Pince Kelvin Kpun, in the statement, pointed out that both H.E, Senator Godswill Akpabio, and H.E, Senator Douye Diri are outstanding public servants with excellent track records without any questionable certificates.

He said Senator Friday Kombowi Benson should stop deviating from the issue at hand by trying to attract public sympathy, but rather, defend himself in the court if he is innocent of the allegations before him.

“If he knows he is innocent as claimed, he should face his trial and defend himself at the court, he should stop dragging the name of the Senate President, H.E Sen. Godswill Akpabio and The Governor of Bayelsa State, H.E Sen. Douye Diri to public domain to attract sympathy, by way of deviating and digressing from the subject matter at hand

“The current Senate President, H.E Distinguished Senator Godswill Obot Akpabio CON, is the 15th President of The Nigeria Senate, a second term senator representing the fabulous characters of Akwa Ibom North-West Senatorial District, he was the immediate past Minister for Niger Delta Affairs from 2015 to 2019 and previously served as Governor of Akwa Ibom State from 2007 to 2015, an impeccable public servant with outstanding track records and excellent certificates

“The aforementioned did not forge any of their certificates, so, Sen. Benson Konbowei should leave these very distinguished personalities out of his NYSC certificate forgery case.

“Distinguished Senator Cleopas Moses .Z. is a bonafide citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and once any crime has been committed he has every right to report this crime to the right authorities in charge as his civil obligation.

“Sen. Benson Friday Konbowei should not by way of digressing or deviating from the issue on ground and try to create any animosity between Sen. Douye Diri, Sen. Godswill Akpabio and Sen. Moses Cleopas. He should concentrate on his forgery case and leave them,” the statement added.
