News Governor Diri: I will sustain Seriake Dickson’s developmental strides

Newly sworn in Governor of Bayelsa, Sen. Douye Diri, has urged the state House of Assembly to expedite passage of the 2020 Appropriation Bill he would soon present for consideration.

Bayelsa State Governor Douye Diri has said his administration would sustain the developmental efforts of his predecessor, Seriake Dickson.

He stated this while speaking as a special guest during a dinner to round off the HSD Golf Club Tournament in Yenagoa on Monday night.

Commending Dickson for the successes recorded by his administration, Diri praised the former governor’s foresight in constructing the Yenagoa Golf Course, describing it as the best in the country.

The tournament attracted professional and amateur golfers from across the country.

The governor, who was represented by Mr George Turnah, noted that the golf course had opened up the state to the rest of the world, particularly golfers.

He promised to sustain the gains of past administrations in the state in developing critical infrastructure to benefit all Bayelsans.

While encouraging youths of the state to take advantage of the many opportunities that the golf course offered, Diri said he would engage more youths through sports development.

He thanked the visiting golfers and assured them of their safety while in the state, noting that Bayelsans and indeed the Ijaw people were the most hospitable anywhere in the world.

He charged the visitors to tell the positive stories of Bayelsa to the rest of the world, noting that since inauguration, his administration had been investing in security architecture and towards uplifting the living standards of the people.
