Barely 24 hours after being sworn in as Governor of Bayelsa State, Seriake Dickson, has dissolved his cabinet.
However, a Government House statement on Monday, said the governor retained his Chief Press Secretary, Daniel Iworiso-Markson.
With the commencement of his second term, the Governor thanked all political appointees, who served in the first tenure for their commitment and dedicated services to the government and people of the state.
According to a Government House statement, Governor Dickson wished them well in all their future endeavours.
The statement, however, pointed out that those whose services might be needed would be reappointed to serve the state in the future.
The appointment of Iworiso-Markson is with immediate effect.
Iworiso-Markson also served in the same capacity from 2012 to the end of the Governor’s first tenure in office.
Meanwhile, there was disquiet in some local government areas in Bayelsa State on Monday as employees of the third tier of government went on the rampage over their unpaid salaries and allowances.
Workers, under the auspices of the National Union of Local Government Employees, who claimed they were owed between four months and nine months salaries shut down council secretariat.
The aggrieved workers vowed that the council secretariats would remain under lock and key until their salaries and allowances were paid.
It was learnt that workers in Nembe and Ogbia LGAs were owed between eight and nine months while those of Yenagoa LGA were owed four months.
