Bayelsa State governor, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson came onboard on the 14th day of February, 2012. His Swearing in ceremony was a package of economic plans and policies aimed at bettering the lot of the people of the state for the present generation and for future generations. At every stage of his administration, it was his mantra to creat jobs for the masses; especially the youths who were visibly roaming the streets of the flegling state capital, Yenagoa. Besides providing employment for the increasing graduated youth population, the Restoration government was also proactive towards industrialization, education etc. The media announcements and advertizements gave high hopes and great expectation in the government on service delivery. When a whoophing sum of#10bn was announced as a take-off amount for only opening of offices in London and South Africa, just to "woo investors", every thoughtful Bayelsa reasoned that the project was a write-off. Hon. Dickson brought together some   of the egg heads of his Ijaw fathers to adminster the funds. The irony of it all, is that, the state government is yet to notify Bayelsans what benifit had accrued to the state in the #10bn deal is a billion naira begging for answers.
