Governor of Bayelsa State, Seriake Dickson
The Governor of Bayelsa state, Mr. Seriake Dickson, says his administration has laid a foundation upon which the future of the state would be built.
The Governor made the declaration on Sunday during a thanksgiving service at the Glory Land Chapel in Government House, Yenagoa to mark the sixth anniversary of his government.
Governor Dickson said the superstructure of the foundation laid by his restoration government was built on education, noting that Bayelsa now has Boarding schools in all local governments areas across the state where thousands of students attend for free.
The chief Executive said over 500 primary and secondary schools had been built or renovated within the six years under review, while scholarships were being offered to students to study abroad and other parts of the country.
While acknowledging that the past six years of his reign was full of “trials and victories”, the Governor also noted that his government had provided public health facilities including a first class diagnostic centre in Yenagoa and referral hospitals in all three senatorial districts of the state.
He urged Bayelsans to subscribe to the health insurance system put in place by his government, adding that ” with the public health insurance system which we have created, you don’t need to have money before getting adequate health care, all you need to do is to subscribe and become a beneficiary”.
Dickson hinted that the first aircraft would touch ground in June this year at the state Cargo Airport constructed by the present administration, pointing out that a deep seaport at Age in Ekeromor local government and a fertilizer company in Brass local government were some ongoing mega projects initiated by the present administration.
Governor Dickson urged politicians in the state, especially the opposition, to shun what he described as criminal politicking and join hands with the state government, using their federal connections, to bring development to the state.
