Governor Dickson Swears In Bayelsa’s Youngest Commissioner
Bayelsa State Governor Seriake Dickson has sworn in the state’s youngest Commissioner, Barakumor Otobo.
Otobo is to be in charge of Youth Development in the state.
The swearing-in ceremony of the new commissioner took place during the State Executive Council Meeting at the Government House in Yenogoa, the state capital.
The Commissioner’s appointment was confirmed last week by the Bayelsa State House of Assembly after serving as the Special Adviser to the Governor on Bayelsa Volunteers.
Otobo will be the youngest commissioner appointed in the executive council since Bayelsa State was created over 21 years ago.
In a related development, the new Commissioner of Police in the state, Don Awunah paid a courtesy call on Dickson at the Governor's Office in Yenagoa.
Awunah appreciated the governor for his support and encouragement while promising the command’s readiness to reciprocate by bringing good results from its operations.
The new CP, who described himself as the "New Sherriff in town", called on Bayelsans to collaborate with the police to ensure the safety of lives and property.
Dickson in his remarks asked the new Commissioner of Police not to relent in his assignment to fight crime.
He explained that his administration’s vision of making the state the safest in the country can be realised.
Awunah was transferred to Bayelsa from the police counter-terrorism unit in Abuja.
A native of Benue State, Awunah joined the police in 1988 after graduating from the University of Lagos.
Awunah, a one-time force public relations officer, had been commissioner in Akwa Ibom and at Police College, Kano.
