Seriake Dickson, governor of Bayelsa state, has announced the appointment 60 new special advisers with his tenure running out in less than six weeks.
A statement issued late on Thursday by Fidelis Soriwei, the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, said the new advisers were expected to complement the governor’s plans for a successful tenure closure.
“His Excellency the Governor of Bayelsa State, the Honourable Henry Seriake Dickson, has approved the appointment of 60 new Special Advisers as part of the deliberate efforts to enable the Restoration Government to finish strong in the avowed commitment to deliver effective governance to the good people of Bayelsa State,” Soriwei said.
Bayelsa State’s governorship election is scheduled for November 16.
The statement added that the “governor has directed the caucuses to nominate women for appointment as special advisers next week, in areas where they have not been considered for appointment.
“However, the government and the party deplore the ungrateful and unpatriotic attitude of a few appointees who have been sustained and recognised in the midst of far more qualified persons for over seven years but are falling prey to the antics of the All Progressives Congress which is inducing party members with money and fake promises.
“While the government wishes them well in their new endeavours, it is pertinent to note that for every appointee, the PDP has several other more qualified people who are ready and willing to be trusted with such privileged positions of responsibility.”
Dickson has so far appointed over 2000 aides in his eight years reign.
