Bayelsa State Governor, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson has described the warm reception accorded him and his entourage during the Thank-You-Tour of the State as an expression of the tacit support the Chiefs and people of the State has for the Restoration Administration.
The Governor, who stated this in a Government House statement, was full of gratitude to the various LGA Chairmen, Traditional Rulers’ Councils, the women, the youths and the entire people for their massive turn-out in all the communities and Local Government Areas that were visited.
Hon. Dickson also commended the Traditional institutions for the various Chieftaincy titles conferred on him, his deputy and Speaker of the State House of Assembly, noting that, it was a clear show of appreciation for the modest achievements of the administration just under two years in office.
According to him, the action of the people will serve as a big morale booster for him and other officers of the Government to even do more for the State.
While, thanking the people, he equally reassured them of the administration’s preparedness to remain focused in the implementation of its Restoration agenda to the latter, stressing that policies and programmes that can change the landscape of the State and impact positively on the lives of the people will remain the hallmarks of the administration.
He also urged beneficiaries of the Women Empowerment scheme to make judicious use of the funds, while assuring the Youths of Government’s resolve to introduce similar programmes for them with a view to making them more useful to themselves and the society.
Governor Dickson also used the opportunity to call on the entire people of the State to remain supportive to the Government, adding the administration means well for the people.
