The World Prosperity Organization has expressed concern over the low level of development and poverty Bayelsa
State. Bayelsa, the only all Ijaw state in the Niger Delta Region of the state was created by late General Sani Abacha in 1996, to bring development and prosperity to the down trodden oil and gas bearing communities and
people in the country.
Speaking to newsmen on the excruciating poverty that had relegated the people to unproductive  ventures and life style, the Founder/President of the World Prosperity, Chief Otonye Godman Evans-Tubonah stated that instead of the bogus claims being orchestrated by those dancing on the stage as to the progress of the state,  described such claims as at variance with what is on ground.
Chief Evans-Tubonah further stated that whereas the state is viable in all aspect of life, the managers of the state's economy seems to have fallen into wrong hands, hence the fortunes of the state is being carted away to foreign lands, in the name of wooing investors to the state and to the detriment of the masses. He took a position to question the rational of the Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson administration on the lee way a colossal amount of N10billion was paid out to London and South/Africa just to open offices.
The World Prosperity leader said, the state government may have scored high points if the said, jaw breaking amount of  N10billion was invested in the state judiciously in the areas of direct industrialization, promotion of commerce and employment rather than  the course of Vasco Dargama  or Mungo Park they took in the investment saga of wooing
investors from outside, emphasizing that Berger, Setraco,, and other companies operating in the state did not come because huge sums of money was used to woo them
Chief Evans Tubonah expressed his views without pretense that whereas his Organization does not like to  criticize without basis, there shall also be no compromise with ideologies and policies that will continue to chain the people of Bayelsa State to abject poverty. Should the poverty level continue to dehumanize the Ijaw people of Bayelsa State or anywhere in the world, his Organization will raise alarm, he therefore called the leaders of Bayelsa State to do things that will prosper the land and people of the state.
