Bayelsa State Governor, Honourable Seriake Dickson, has been commended for promoting the culture and traditions of the Ijaw people, as well as for being a true ambassador of his people.

A statement by the Chief Press secretary to the Governor, Mr. Francis Ottah Agbo, quotes the former Jigawa State Governor, Alhaji Sule Lamido, as making the commendation during the inauguration of a pavilion in the governor's country home of Toru Orua in Sagbama Local Government Area of the state.

Speaking at the event, Alhaji Lamido, who is a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant, eulogised Governor Dickson for constructing the edifice, noting that, through this singular act, the governor has endeared himself to the people.

He said he was consumed by the magnificence of the pavilion, which is aimed at promoting oneness, adding that, Nigerians have the responsibility of promoting integration among the various peoples of the nation.

In his remarks, Governor Dickson, who expressed appreciation to Alhaji Lamido for taking out time to inaugurate projects in the state, explained that, the edifice was in honour of the founder of Toru Orua community and his great-grandfather, King Kpadia.

He lamented that, before the coming of his administration in 2012, communities use to hold meetings in unconducive places, but now the narrative is changing with the new pavilions, which he described as landmark projects.

According to the governor, the pavilion named King Kpadia Memorial Square is for the people to hold meetings and other events, while urging the elders and people to take good care of the facility.

In a brief introductory remark, Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Mr. Lawrence Ehwrudjakpo said, the pavilion is one of many built by the state government, noting that, many of such pavilions would be Inaugurated during the planned Thank You Tour of the governor.

One of the high points of the occasion was the visit to the palace of the King of Tarakiri Kingdom, HRM King Richard ford Orukaribai Koroye by Alhaji Lamido, along with members of his presidential campaign team.
