With one week to the end of the Restoration Government, a document containing its performance across the the various sectors is now ready for public consumption.
The document captures a vivid account of the sectoral performance of the government and how it impacted positively on the lives of the people.
Submitting the report to the State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, the
Performance Analysis Committee said it delivered on its mandate despite the hiccups it encountered during the task.
Chairman of the committee, Dr. Matthew Ayibakuro thanked the Commissioner for the opportunity and explained that the report which was thoroughly put together will give Bayelsans an insight on how well the outgoing government fared in its eight year term.
He said upon the inauguration of the committee in July 2019, it was saddled with the responsibility of garnering indices and statistics on the numerous achievements of Governor Henry Seriake Dickson.
According to him, the whole essence of its task was to give the government a proper perspective on all its achievements and bring to bear the need for Bayelsans to know the milestones achieved by the government.
Responding, the Commissioner applauded the commitment of the committee in submitting the interim report despite time constraints, emphasizing that their work will be of immense benefit to the incoming administration.
Iworiso-Markson noted that the incoming administration will use the report to consolidate on the achievements of the Restoration government and make effective policies as well as initiate crack programmes for the benefit of the state.
He also lauded the efforts of Governor Dickson in transforming the state and said that the work of the committee will help Bayelsans better appreciate the developmental strides of the Restoration administration.
He said: “Government is a continuum. It doesn’t mean that because one government is leaving and another is taking over, that the structures and systems put in place should come to an abrupt stop.
“Some Bayelsans do not see the benefits of the monumental achievements of Governor Dickson, for instance, the airport. The findings of this report will help people better appreciate the economic boost and job creation that the airport has caused in the state.
“I truly appreciate the zealousness and sacrifice of the committee in getting this work done. It is young people like you that are the real hope and future of Bayelsa State because what you have done is not for any particular individual or government. It is for the good of Bayelsa state”.
