“Rivers @ 50” Governor Dickson Congratulates Rivers State Government, Regrets Bayelsa’s non-involvement
As Rivers State concludes the celebrations of its Golden Jubilee, the Governor of Bayelsa State, Honourable Henry Seriake Dickson says the Government of Bayelsa State was absent at the epoch-making ceremony because his Government and the good people of his state were not invited or involved in the planning for the anniversary which in actual sense should have been an event for both states; celebrating their history, bond, trials and achievements.
The statement adds that Governor Dickson as an older Governor believes that both Rivers and Bayelsa states are not rivals but sister states that stand to gain by working together. He therefore calls on the people of both states to continue to live in peace as they have been doing over the years. The Governor advises those who have a penchant for promoting discord, division and disunity for their selfish interest to desist from doing so but should rather promote unity and better understanding between the people of the two states and their leaders as Governor Dickson will not give in to such antics because the Governor knows them very well!
