Bayelsa declares public holiday for thanksgiving

The Bayelsa State Government has declared November 2nd as a public holiday to mark the state’s annual thanksgiving.

The Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr Daniel Iworiso-Markson, urged residents to take advantage of the holiday and turn up en masse for the solemn event.

“It is that time of the year again to collectively thank God for all his goodness, mercies and grace upon their lives and the state.

“There should not be any excuse not to turn up for the event as the public holiday which is backed by law, gives everyone, especially civil servants the opportunity to be part of it,” he said.

He noted that Governor Seriake Dickson would lead other‎ members of his cabinet to the thanksgiving at the newly inaugurated Bayelsa State Ecumenical Center.

‎Iworiso-Markson added that Rev. Uma Ukpai would be the guest preacher alongside other clerics while American songwriter and gospel musician, Ron Kenoly, would entertain the audience.
