The Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, on Thursday nominated caretaker committees’ chairpersons for the eight Local Government Areas of the state.
The governor sent the nominees’ list to the state House of Assembly for screening and confirmation.
The nominees, whose names were read on the floor of the House by Speaker Kombowei Benson are – Michael Magbisa for Sagbama local government area and Tolu Amatu for Ekeremor.
Others are – Victor Isaiah (Brass), Chief Befie Inemo (Nembe), Oforji Oboku (Yenagoa), Nigeria Kia (Southern Ijaw), Naomi Ogoli (Ogbia) and Wisdom Fafi (Kolokuma/Okokuma).
The nominees were directed to appear before the House on October 11 for screening and confirmation.
Dickson also said his government had commenced a comprehensive public sector reform as part of measures to make the system more viable for rapid growth.
The governor’s intention was disclosed shortly after the 80th State Executive Council meeting in Yenagoa.
The state’s new Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, said the decision to begin the reforms was hinged on the desire of the government to inject more life into the public sector.
