Seriake Appoints 60 New Aides Two Weeks To End Of Tenure
Just five weeks to a gubernatorial election, the governor of Bayelsa State, Seriake Dickson has appointed 60 new special advises.
This was contained in a statement signed on Thursday by the Chief Press Secretary, Fidelis Soriwei
The appointees were drawn from the eight local government areas of the sate.
The governor had had over 2000 appointees since he started his second term in 2016.
Seriake said the appointment will help the government finish well.
The statement read: “His Excellency the Governor of Bayelsa State, the Honourable Henry Seriake Dickson, has approved the appointment of 60 new Special Advisers as part of the deliberate efforts to enable the Restoration Government to finish strong in the avowed commitment to deliver effective governance to the good people of Bayelsa State.”
The state’s gubernatorial election is scheduled to hold on November the 16.
The statement further reads “The governor has directed the caucuses to nominate women for appointment as special advisers next week, in areas where they have not been considered for appointment.
“However, the government and the party deplore the ungrateful and unpatriotic attitude of a few appointees who have been sustained and recognised in the midst of far more qualified persons for over seven years but are falling prey to the antics of the All Progressives Congress which is inducing party members with money and fake promises.
“While the government wishes them well in their new endeavours, it is pertinent to note that for every appointee, the PDP has several other more qualified people who are ready and willing to be trusted with such privileged positions of responsibility.”
