PDP is on course - Dickson

03 March 2013, 16:19

Yenagoa - Gov. Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa on Sunday said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was being repackaged for efficiency, cohesion and unity to enable it play its leading role in the affairs of the country.

Dickson made the remark in Yenagoa while fielding questions from Government House correspondents, shortly on arrival from PDP meeting in Abuja.

He said that the meeting was part of current efforts at repositioning the ruling PDP for maximum results.

The governor assured supporters of the party in the state that "all is well’’ and urged them to shun rumour mongering.

He added that his administration’s major focus was in the area of education, stressing, however, that "by the time policies in the sector take root and jobs were created for the many jobless youths, many problems would be minimised’’.

He restated his administration’s commitment to tackle the myriad of developmental challenges facing the state and called on the people of Bayelsa to remain steadfast in prayers for the administration.

On hand to receive the governor were the state’s Deputy Governor, retired Rear Admiral Gboribiogha Jonah, the Secretary to State Government, Prof. Edmund Allison-Oguru, some members of the state Executive Council and the commissioner of police, among others.
