Governor Diri Swears In 5 Commissioners, 25 Special Advisers

Bayelsa State Governor, Senator Douye Diri, on Monday, swore in two new cabinet Commissioners, three non-Executive Commissioners of the state Local Government Service Commission and 25 Special Advisers.

Also inaugurated were six Technical Advisers.

At the ceremony, which took place in the Executive Chambers of the Government House in Yenagoa, Governor Diri charged the new appointees to be diligent, dedicated and to wear the toga of integrity.

He said the revalidation of his mandate depended on their performance and the extent to which they selflessly serve the people.

He emphasised the need for them to respect their respective roles and avoid actions that hinder the smooth operations of government.

He stated that team work must be their watchword as this would help his administration achieve more goals.

His words: “We expect you to be diligent, dedicated and wear the toga of integrity. We cannot afford to fail as failure is not in our dictionary.

“God is interested in the prosperity of Bayelsa State. I believe He will continue to supernaturally engrace us all to do exceedingly, abundantly and far above what we can think or imagine.

“We are all happy to have you as a piece and a part of the Prosperity Jigsaw and we look forward to a fruitful cooperation and contribution to the fitting of this great Bayelsa project.”
