Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State has said that his administration will carry out full implementation of the ongoing public sector reforms in the state in 2018.
He said the development was part of the administration’s wind-down of its second term and its determination and focus to finish well and strong.
The governor, who presided over the 86th State Executive Meeting in Yenagoa on Thursday, also promised the people of the state to expect the completion and inauguration of major projects of the government in 2018.
Addressing journalists after the 86th SEC meeting, the Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, said Dickson used the opportunity to welcome council members back from the holidays and charged them to be prepared for more work.
He said the governor also assigned the responsibility of overseeing the Ministry of Transport and that of Trade, Industry and Investment to Dauprebo Ikuromo and Duate Iyabi because the positions were vacant.
Iyabi is the current Chief Economic Adviser to the governor, while Ikuromo is the Commissioner for Special Duties representing Bayelsa East Senatorial Zone in the state executive council.
Iworiso-Markson also said that a minute’s silence was held in honour of two former members of the council, Ayakame Massa, and Francis Egele (SAN), who passed away recently.
He thanked residents of Bayelsa for the support they gave to the government in the previous year and assured them that the government would not relent to do more as it vigorously pursued its restoration agenda.
