Nigerian economy: Dickson urges Bayelsans to listen to Buhari

The Bayelsa State Governor, Henry Seriake Dickson has urged the people of his state to listen to President Muhammadu Buhari on the state of the nation’s economy which he said is broke, ITRealms reports.

Dickson was speaking during his charge to the new Special Advisers at Government House, Yenagoa, Wednesday saying the way out of the present economic depression is diversification of the economy oil and gas sector of the economy.

“Investors who want to do business in Nigeria are entitled to know the true state of our economy. Let me use this opportunity to call on all Bayelsans to listen to what the President has said that the entire country is broke. He has made us understand that the financial situation that we are managing is a national phenomenon. It is not peculiar to Bayelsa.

”For the allocation of last month, the Federation Account Allocation Committee could not meet until the past month because they didn’t have money to share to the state and , even when they met for the first time since I took over as governor, states have started getting zero allocation.

However, even in the midst of that we are managing to pay salaries. Even in this terrible month, we’ve directed that by Monday salaries of workers should be paid,” he stated.

In his charge to the new appointees, ITRealms gathered, the governor told them to bring their wealth of experience to bear in the present administration’s efforts to consolidate on its achievements. According to him, the new aides are coming into government at a crucial moment of election and, therefore, urged them to join forces with other critical stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) to mobilize support for the party in the forthcoming election.
