Dickson swears in 2 permanent secretaries

03 January 2013, 10:04

Yenagoa - Gov. Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa on Wednesday in Yenagoa swore in two new permanent secretaries. They are Mr Suru Oyarede and Mr Preye Agedah.

Speaking at the ceremony, Dickson said Oyarede would serve as permanent secretary for local government, while Agedah would serve as Permanent Secretary and Solicitor-General in the Ministry of Justice.

He said Oyarede's appointment was the first time an official from the Local Government system would be appointed permanent secretary without formal transfer of service to public service. The governor said the appointment was to make officials in the local government system have a sense of belonging.

He charged the new permanent secretaries to show commitment to their jobs, and gave the assurance that worthy workers who showed commitment and dedication to work would be rewarded accordingly.

The governor, who said the major challenge of the Ministry of Justice was the sloppy manner government cases were handled, called on Agedah to address the problem.
