Members of the Bayelsa State House of Assembly on Thursday gave a standing ovation to former Minister of Science and Technology, Prof. Turner Isoun, when he appeared before them for screening as chairman of the newly constituted Education Trust Fund board.

The lawmakers rather than screen the erudite professor unanimously confirmed his nomination by ‎Governor Seriake Dickson, describing him as the best man for the job because of his impeccable integrity and uprigthness.

One after the other the lawmakers praised his choice to head the fund, maintaining that Prof Isoun will bring his experience and honesty to bear in the new task and thanked Governor Dickson for putting so much importance to the management of the fund.

According to them, Dickson must have recognised the value and enormous benefit the new law will do to the state which ultimately necessitated him to pick Isoun, a former chairman of the‎ board of the Nigerian Communications Satallite Limited (Nigcomsat).

They asked him to take a bow, expressing delight that in no distant time the state will experience a major boost in the education sector with his entrance and assured him and members of the board of their unalloyed support to enable him succeed.

They also used the opportunity to call on all Bayelsans to believe in the new law as it was made with good intention to give students in the state a secured future and thanked Isoun for accepting to serve his state again.
