Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State has attributed the peace prevailing in the state to the commitment, dedication and sacrifices of security agencies.

Dickson at a cocktail party held in honour of security chiefs in the state, according to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, said that security personnel sometimes pay with their lives in the course of discharging their duties. The government, he said, has also put first class security infrastructure in place to keep the state safe and complement the efforts of various security agencies in the state.

Dickson explained that the expectation of his government was to ensure that Bayelsa State attained a higher status in terms of security, noting that the state is the safest in the Niger Delta region.

He said: “Government has put in place first class security infrastructure to keep the state safe to protect the tourism industry for visitors and investors. Making Bayelsa safe is the responsibility of all, in order to protect the investments in the state. As world class infrastructure without security is a wasteful investment that will not attract anybody or investors.”

He stated that the event, which was an opportunity for interaction with the security chiefs, will equally bring the government closer to them as well as the people they protect and end the year on a happy note.

The Commissioner of Police, Bayelsa State Command, Adeyemi Ogunjemolusi, warned perpetrators of criminal activities in the state of hard times, while assuring residents of the determination of security agencies to keep the state safe and peaceful during this festive period.
