The outgone Chief Press Secretary to Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State, Daniel Iworiso-Markson has called on youths of Ogbia Local Government Area to give the governor full support in his quest to make life more meaningful to them.
According to him, the governor has done so well in developing human capacity in the state, through his massive investment in education and manpower development.
Iworiso-Markson, represented by Eteli Tuanam, a Surveyor, made the call on Saturday, while delivering a lecture entitled: “Dangers of hard drugs and cultism”, as a Special Guest of Honour during the first Ogbia Students Conference with the theme: “Education as the panacea for National Development.”
He said, “Without education the future of this generation and those coming is bleak. That is why the present administration is investing massively in that sector. All of you are witnesses to the fact that, new schools are been built, while old ones are refurbished and well equipped.
“A good example is the IJAW NATIONAL ACADEMY in Kaiama. The school has among other things 1,000 students and a British principal. Everything and without mincing words everything is free. From textbooks to food, just name them”.
“So you can see clearly that, through Governor Dickson’s massive investment in education, the government is helping to prepare a new generation of leaders that will help impact on the society positively”.
