Dickson explains choice of Dokubo-Spiff, Iyabi

The Governor of Bayelsa State, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson, has explained his choice of appointing Chief David Serena Dokubo-Spiff as Secretary to the State Government,  and Mr. Duate Iyabi as Chief Economic Adviser, promising they will deliver, reports ITRealms.

Describing Dokubo-Spiff as a technocrat, Dickson said the choice of the SSG was informed by his wealth of experience as a legal practitioner and administrative acumen, "which are critical to his new role as the one to pilot the bureaucratic machinery and the secretariat of government."

The Chief Press Secretary to Gov. Dickson, Mr. Daniel Markson-Iworiso informed ITRealms, Wednesday at the inauguration of Dokubo-Spiff as SSG and Chief Economic Adviser, Mr. Duate Iyabi, at the Executive Council Chambers, Government Houses in Yenagoa, quoted the governor as saying that both men have a track record of service and equally understand the direction and foundation of the new administration.

Dickson who showered encomiums on the new SSG, expressed confidence in the abilities and sense of judgement of Dokubo-Spiff, stressing that, as the engine room of the administration, the entire bureaucracy of the state will look up to him for direction and service.

"As a man who understands the issues of development of the state and  as former acting chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the State, you have the administrative capability to steer the ship of the secretariat and bureaucracy of the state, given your knowledge as a legal luminary,” he said.

Gov. Dickson also commended his dedication to steer the course of the state at a very critical time.
As a passionate believer in the Ijaw nation, your loyalty can never be faulted, coupled with your track record of service and commitment to our collective aspiration as a people”.

Additionally, Dickson said Iyabi's expertise is required more than ever before, especially at this time of economic down-turn, to give quality advice to keep the economy of the state afloat.

The governor expressed optimism that he would use his position as chairman of the state economic team, to harness and coordinate all investments of the state government, while also commending him for managing the treasury transparently and efficiently during his tenure as Commissioner of Finance.
