GOV DICKSON EXPLAINS BAYELSA EDUCATION DEVT LEVY ‎

Bayelsa State governor, Hon. Seriake Dickson has explained reasons why his administration conceived the Education Development Levy with compulsory contribution by key stakeholders in the state.

According to Governor Dickson, though the state has invested heavily in the provision of needed infrastructures in various parts of the state, the education development levy is expected to assist in building a crop of highly skilled and educated Bayelsa youths, to meet the challenges of a competitive and industrialised world now and in the future.

Governor Dickson, who made this known  on Friday night during a media chat with newsmen in Yenagoa, said that the members of the state executive councils, state assembly members and the judiciary will contribute to the development levy.

He also announced that as a governor, he is obliged to make monthly contribution to the Education Development fund with the sum of N100,000,his deputy, N50,000,the speaker, N30,000 and the state chief Judge, N25,000.

Governor Dickson canvassed the support of the people of the state to enable his administration provide quality education, particularly for the less privileged children.

He said the time had come for the state to take up the challenge of reversing the trend, where youths engage in unproductive activities that could truncate their future.

While highlighting his administration’s achievements in the sector,  Governor Dickson noted that, the recent educational development laws were a culmination of the substantial investments and legacies in education.

The governor further provided some  insight into the educational policies of the government, stating that, the Educational Development Trust Fund is expected to generate  between N100 and N250 million monthly, while that of the Higher Education Students Loan would be  solely funded by the Government.
