GOV DICKSON SAYS PDP IS BEING REPACKAGED FOR EFFICIENCY AND COHESION, ATTRIBUTES RUMORS TO LACK OF EDUCATION, IDLENESS
Bayelsa State Governor, Hon. Seriake Dickson says the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP was being repackaged for efficiency, cohesion and unity to enable it play its leading role in the affairs of the country.
Governor Dickson made this remark, while fielding questions from Government House correspondents shortly on arrival from Abuja, where he was part of current efforts at repositioning the ruling PDP for maximum results.
Assuring the supporters of the party in the state that all is well, he also reacted to rumours making the rounds in the state about his office; describing the rumours as baseless and attributed the development to lack of education and idleness.
Governor Dickson noted that his administration's major focus was in the area of education and by the time the policies in the sector take root and jobs are created for the many jobless youths, the problem would be minimized.
He restated his administration's commitment to tackle the myriad of developmental challenges facing the State and called on Bayelsans to remain steadfast in their prayers for the administration.
Governor Dickson later inspected a guard of honour mounted by a detachment of the Nigeria Police, Bayelsa State Command at the Government House gate, Yenagoa.
On hand to receive the Governor were the State Deputy Governor, Rtd Rear Admiral Gboribiogha John Jonah, Secretary to State Government, Professor Edmund Allison-Oguru, some members of the State Executive Council, the Commissioner of Police, Bayelsa State Command, CP Kings Omire and other top Government functionaries.
