Dickson Resumes Work after Vacation


Bayelsa State Governor, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson, has resumed duties following the expiration of his annual vacation.

His spokesman, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, who confirmed this in a statement yesterday, said the governor as required by law, had written to the state House of Assembly through the Speaker, Friday Konbowei Benson, signalling his resumption.

He thanked his deputy, Rear Admiral John Jonah (rtd), for effectively standing in for him as acting governor during the period of his absence and also other members of the state executive council who have continued to work tirelessly for the good of the state.

The governor also expressed his appreciation to Bayelsans especially civil servants for their dedication to duty and the support they have been given to his administration.

He reiterated an earlier announcement that as part of his first assignment upon resumption, he would continue with the inauguration of projects.
