I’ve fulfilled my campaign promises, says Dickson
Governor Seriake Dickson has said he was committed to building an egalitarian, infrastructural sustainable and economically viable Bayelsa State that would stand the test of time.
The governor, who said he was proud of his achievements, explained that despite the difficult terrain which made cost of projects excessively high, his administration has stayed faithful to his campaign promises of all-round development of the deltaic state.
According to him, the last six years have been devoted to building critical infrastructures in education, health and road construction.
The governor, represented by the Deputy Governor, Rear Admiral Gboribiogha John Jonah, stated this during the commencement of the inter-ministerial press briefing organised for members of the State Executive Council (SEC) by the Ministry of Information and Orientation.
The briefing held at the Dr. Gabriel OKara Cultural Centre, Ovom Yenagoa, was to present the scorecard of the six-year administration.
He insisted that the investments made in various sectors were capable of catapulting the state to the next level of development.
Dickson who admitted that his administration’s achievement may not be fully appreciated immediately, said his legacies would endure.
While commending members of the cabinet for giving life to his vision, the governor assured the people of his determination to finish strong and bring to fruition all ongoing foundational projects.
Earlier, the chief host of the event and the state commissioner for information and orientation, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, had said that the briefing would present opportunities for members of cabinet who implement policies and projects of the present administration to present their report card with a view to showcasing the achievements of Dickson in the last five years.
The commissioner who described Dickson as a true patriot with a penchant for development, transparency, accountability and single minded commitment to the public good, said posterity will be kind to the governor.
He stressed that starting from the commissioner for works and infrastructural development, every member of the SEC would daily, one after the other, present report of unprecedented harvest of dividends of democracy which has become the signpost of Dickson’s impactful Restoration Government.
The Commissioner for Works, Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo, presented long list of projects in transportation, education, public utility and health.
