Bayelsa State Governor, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson has expressed gratitude to the Alei of Aleibiri, His Royal Highness, Chief Simon Ebebi, the Chiefs and people of Aleibiri Community in Ekeremor Local Government Area for the warm reception planned for him and his entourage during the funeral rites of Late Oyarede Selekere, father of the Hon. Commissioner for Housing and Urban Development, Mr. Ball Oyarede.
Even though, he could not make the trip due to some unforeseen circumstances that, urgently needed his attention, Governor Dickson commended the Aleibiri people for their show of solidarity and support for the programmes and policies of the Restoration Government in the State.
The Bayelsa State Chief Executive, who expressed regret over the last minute cancellation of the trip, assured the Chiefs of his plans to visit the community and express his appreciation at a date to be announced soon.
He used the opportunity to thank them for their warm disposition and conferring on him the coveted title of ‘Tari-kekere-owei” of Aleibiri, meaning ‘The Man Who Adores and Nurtures Love’ as a mark of honour for his support over the years.
He assured them that, to demonstrate his appreciation for their continued love, he will visit the community during his proposed thank you tour to Ekeremor Local Government Area, early next month.
