The People of Bayelsa went agog with celebrations as the state government rolled out carpet and set the stage for an historic 2nd anniversary of Restoration Government which policy on public finance is Probity and Accountability.
Governor Dickson who from inception of his administration on February 14th Valentin's Day assured of rapid development in both infrastructural and human resources had consistently engaged the state on what he calls Monthly Transparency briefing.
