Bayelsa Govt recommits to development


By Eunice Nnachi, Yenagoa

Bayelsa Government has restated its commitment to working assiduously for the continued peace, stability and development of the state.

The Deputy Governor, Senator Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo, stated this at the weekend while speaking at a special dinner organized in honour of some stakeholders of Bayelsa West Senatorial District at his Lodge in Government House, Yenagoa.

Senator Ewhrudjakpo, in a statement by his media aide, Mr Doubara Atasi, noted that the Governor Douye Diri-led administration would remain focused on completing all ongoing projects and embark on new economically viable ones to achieve job and wealth creation.

The Bayelsa Number Two Man vowed that the administration would not allow anything including the ongoing legal action filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in the 11th November 2023 governorship election, Chief Timipre Sylva, to distract its attention.

He called on all well-meaning Bayelsans including opposition elements to join hands with the government in expanding the frontiers of development in the state, rather than embark on a wild goose chase.

Senator Ewhrudjakpo, who expressed optimism that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate would be victorious at all levels of the legal battle, stressed that the 2023 governorship election was won and lost fair and square.

He thanked the people of the state across party lines for their show of love and support during the elections and the second term inauguration ceremony, describing it as unprecedented in the annals of the state.

According to the Deputy Governor, similar get-together ceremonies will be organized to appreciate PDP stakeholders in Bayelsa Central and East senatorial districts.
