“WE WILL NOT REST UNTIL WE DELIVER THE DIVIDENDS OF DEMOCRACY TO OUR PEOPLE” ---- GOV. DICKSON
Newly sworn-in commissioners in Bayelsa State have been charged to be prepared to work hard to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people of the state.
Governor Seriake Dickson gave the charge while speaking at the inaugural meeting of the State Executive Council held in Government House.
Hon. Dickson, who identified sacrifice, dedication to duty and resourcefulness as the key factors to achieving the goals of the restoration agenda, said all hands must be on deck to deliver on their campaign promises.
While welcoming the new commissioners on board, Governor Dickson said as members of the restoration team, they will not rest until they actualize the goals the present administration has set out for itself.
The Governor reminded the commissioners that expectations are high in view of the support and goodwill the administration enjoys and called on them to apply themselves to duty, adding that no ministry should be considered more, or less important to the other.
He noted that their swearing-in and the inaugural meeting mark the beginning of the restoration of the state, pointing out that there was so much to be done.
Responding, Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Edmund Allison-Oguru assured the Governor of their readiness to work towards the realisation of government’s
policies and programmes.
Prof. Allison-Oguru said they were aware of the enormous responsibilities that lie ahead of them and assured that they would not betray the confidence reposed in them.
