‘Dickson ranks among best governors in Nigeria’
SEEFOR Constructs 406 Roads, Empowers 17, 685 Youths
Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State will go down in history as one of the best performing governors in the country, the Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, has said.
Iworiso-Markson, during the transparency briefing in Yenagoa, asserted that Dickson’s administration defied all challenges to break new grounds in tackling developmental needs of the state.
According to the commissioner, Dickson showed uncommon doggedness in addressing educational backwardness of the state through free primary and post-primary education.
He said, “Let me quickly say that in less than a month, this government that has done a lot to turn around the fortunes of our state will exit, will handover and this is the first government that will be handing over to another (party).
“I want to, on behalf of the Restoration Government, thank Bayelsans most sincerely for their support and abiding faith in the government. You know sometimes we tend to forget; eight years is a long period and this government has defied all odds to remain steadfast and faithful to our cause, and by February 14 next month, we would have reached the end of the road in terms of our service to Bayelsans.
“I want to say here and now that the Restoration Government will go down in history as one administration that has achieved the most in all areas.”
Iworiso-Markson also highlighted the unequalled scholarship programme, infrastructural development and investments in the health sector as some of the achievements of the Dickson-led administration, noting: “Let it be said here.
He enjoined those who are in the habit of running down the governor to have a rethink, else they would one day regret all the unkind words they said to him.
Meanwhile, the State Employment and Expenditure For Results (SEEFOR) Project, Bayelsa State, said it has so far constructed 406 roads and empowered 17, 665 residents across the eight councils of the state since its inception in June 2013.
Speaking after a tour of completed and on-going projects across the state, the National Project Coordinator of SEEFOR, Dr. Greg Onu, commended the Bayelsa State office for exceeding the target of the project in youth employment and public access to socio-economic services.
