The long expectected inauguration Volunteer is on at the Government House banquet hall. The governor of the state Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson was said to have said that the measure was to provide employment of youths in the state. Over 20 thousand youth were said to have gathered outside the gate while a few were allowed to enter the princint of the hall.
As Dickson goes on with the Volunteer project opinion leaders in the state observed that the Governor made a u turn on what he earlier condemned on assumpsion of office, that it was unnecessary that past administration erred in constituting a vuluntreer body.
Mr. Miebi Tombra a public affairs analyst have expressed his reservations that the move may not be unconnected with the governor's plan to succed himself in 2016 as governor of Bayelsa State using the volunteers.
The governor widely condemned his predecessors for having a similar body and today he is inaugurating what he condemned makes the matter incomprehensive, Mr. Tombra said, while arguing that provision of employment could not be the reason for constituting the body the government should take a bold step bi lifting the ban on employment in th state.
