The Special Adviser to the Governor of Bayelsa State on Political matters, Hon. Fyneman Wilson has called on the National Assembly to consider the creation of additional 8 Local Government Areas to make 16 LGAS for the people of Bayelsa State without further delay.
He stated this in Yenagoa the capital city of the oil rich state in the Niger Delta Region, during an interview with the Golden Pen Newspaper which paid him a courtesy visit in his office, Yesterday.
Hon. Fyneman Wilson
According to the political leader, the continued existence of Bayelsa State in her 8 Local Government Areas status to date, may not be unconnected with the unmindfulness exhibited by members of the Natioanal Assembly (The Senate and the House of Representatives) past and present to the provision of the Nigerian Constitution of 1999 as Amended, which catigorically states that no state, created in Nigeria should have less than 10 LGAs.
He therefore called on the National Assembly to consider this matter as demanding urgent constitutional attention pursuant to the fulfillment of the laws of the land on the number of LGAS, on the sensitive issue of states creation.
Hon. Wilson emphasized the need for the Senate and the House of Representatives to without further delay form a coalition on this important matter with a view to foisting national cohesion, national unity and national interest.
The S/A Political who commended the APC led Federal Government for her victory over the Boko Haram insurgency in the Country, observed that more needs to be done by the national security operatives to stop what he calls, the constantly reported cases of kidnapping and criminal murders across the country and the bloody clashes between cattle ranchers and farmers  in parts of the country with impunity.
The S/A political used the medium to call on the APC government to make life more meaningful to the citizens by coming out with sound anti-poverty  policies that will bring about economic stability, mass employment, wealth creation etc, in line with her campaigns for change for a better Nigeria.
Fielding questions about Bayelsa state, he gave kudos to the Governor of the State, His Excellency, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson for his achievement of peace and it's sustenance. He also expressed gratitude to the governor for taken the bold initiative at propelling the ship of state in the area of development; especially now that the national economy is highly challenged.
