 Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, on Saturday declared the state’s statement of account.

While addressing his political appointees on the statement of accounts, the Governor expressed concern over the steady decline in revenues from the Federation Accounts Allocation Committee (FAAC), as evidenced in the less than one billion naira shortfall in revenue between August and September.

Governor Dickson, who reassured civil servants of his preparedness to pay their salaries from Monday, October 5, in spite of the sharp decline in revenue of the state, also appealed to Bayelsans to keep faith with his administration as he assured them that he and his team are making the best out the situation.

He also seized the opportunity to remind Bayelsans of the state’s indebtedness which according to him, is as a result of the financial mismanagement experienced in the state during the five year rule of former Governor Timipre Sylva.

He, however, advised Bayelsans to be wise when casting their votes on December 5.

Aside informing Bayelsans of the financial condition of the state, the meeting afforded the Governor another opportunity to rub minds with his appointees and noted the strategies mapped out by his administration to ensure landslide victory during the upcoming polls. (Channels TV)
