Bayelsa State Governor, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson, this Thursday
visited Oghara, the country home of Chief James Onanefe Ibori, former
Governor of Delta State.
During the visit, the Bayelsa State Governor held a closed door
meeting with Chief Ibori in his residence.
A Government House statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the
Bayelsa State Governor, Mr. Daniel Iworiso Markson says, the meeting
centred mostly on peace and security in the Niger Delta, as well as
possible roles the former Delta State Governor, who still commands a
lot of respect among his people, could play, especially in the area of
rallying major stakeholders towards tackling some of the peace,
security, unity and  development challenges in the region.
The statement further disclosed that, the two leaders equally
discussed likely windows of opportunities for criminally minded youths
in the region to be more meaningfully engaged as well as protect some
of the critical national assets of the country within the region.
The Bayelsa State Governor, who had earlier spoken with his Delta
State counterpart, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, expressed satisfaction with
the disposition and resolve of the former Governor to support current
measures at tackling the age long security and developmental
challenges in the region.
Hon. Dickson was accompanied on the visit by Secretary to the State
Government, Chief David Serena Dokubo-Spiff, some members of the State
Executive Council, including the Commissioner of Information and
Orientation, Hon. Jonathan Obuebite, Special Advisers, traditional
rulers and other relevant stakeholders.
Governor Dickson has since returned to Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital.
