Gov Dickson Swears-In Commissioner And Special Advisers
The Governor Of Bayelsa State, Seriake Dickson, wants the newly sworn in Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr. Esueme Dan-Kikile and two Special Advisers to generate sound ideas that would further consolidate on the achievements of the government.
The Special Advisers are, Dr. Seiyifa Koroye on Strategy, Documentation and Community Relations and Barr. Lloyd Ineye-Owonaro, on Local Content Matters.
Governor Dickson, while congratulating the newly sworn in officers, urged them to demonstrate absolute commitment to the ideals enshrined in the restoration agenda of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
Addressing the new Commissioner, Governor Dickson urged him to re-engineer the Ministry to achieve effective dissemination of government policies and programmes as well as enlighten the people on their civic responsibilities.
Highlighting the dangers of inadequate information on the government’s activities in the state, the Governor noted that mischief-makers who indulge in blackmail and propaganda for parochial gains would misguide the citizenry.
Governor Dickson enjoined Mr Lloyd Owonaro to liaise with the Nigeria Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB), to enable the state derive maximum benefit.
He also expressed the need for the Special Advisers to evolve programmes to promote the growth of local businesses and entrepreneurs to take advantage of the opportunities in the oil and gas industry.
