YENAGOA—Nigerians must embrace peaceful co-existence and promote unity to achieve national integration and faster pace of development.
Bayelsa State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr. Daniel Iworiso-Markson gave the advice when the leadership of the Supreme Council for Non-Indigenes in the state called on him in Yenagoa.
Iworiso-Markson said the initiation and execution of quality projects in the state in the last six years were indicative of forward looking leadership style of Governor Seriake Dickson who understands the strong link between migration of people of different cultures and exposure into a young state such as Bayelsa that is in dire need of development.
Earlier, President-General of the Supreme Council for Non-Indigenes, Alhaji Ade Bakare, commended the commissioner for the professional way he has managed government’s image since assumption of duty in the ministry.
Bakare said Iworiso-Markson has turned the state to a big show that everyone is compelled to watch, adding that Bayelsa is now out of twilight and has secured a permanent seat in the limelight.
