Bayelsa State Governor, Senator Douye Diri has come out to say that his government would diversify the state’s economy away from the total dependence on oil-related revenue in 2021.

He recently revealed this via in his New Year message, tagged: “Message of Hope and Prosperity,” and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, he also intends to create more jobs to engage its youths, and he will not fail to raise the internally generated revenue profile of the state in the new year.

He added that he is also proud of the interventions Bayelsa State made in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic that ensured it recorded one of the least casualties and fatalities in Nigeria.

His words, “In this new year, as a consequence of the well-conceived policies and estimates contained in the already passed 2021 “Budget of Growth,” we expect to witness accelerated development and progress across all strata of our lives, all things being equal.”

“We will diversify our economy, create sustainable jobs to engage our youths and explore alternative sources of improving our internally generated revenue. If we look inwards, the buds of change that have opened since we took over the government will begin to yield fruit.

“With your partnership, we will create a conducive environment that will attract investors and tourists and allow our people to participate in prosperity for all. We face many obstacles, but we are an indomitable people. It is our prayer that God will grant us wisdom, favour and insight to hidden treasures to make this possible timeously.

“In 2021, we are going to consolidate on existing programmes and expand our activities to bring relief to a greater number of our citizens.”

“As a government, we will continue to make the responsible choices and take the tough decisions that will enhance our quest for a prosperous state. We are conscious that the decisions we make today have far-reaching implications for generations yet unborn. It is a responsibility we take very conscientiously. Therefore, we cannot afford to abdicate our duty.”

“Despite all the odds against us, we have made headway and taken many important steps that have made a world of difference. For instance, the proactive actions we initiated have accounted for the peace and security that we have enjoyed over the course of 2020. It has not only ensured the return of internally displaced persons (IDPs) to their ancestral homes, as in the case of Nembe community but also made it conducive for holding free, fair and credible bye-elections in the Central and West Senatorial zones.

“We are also proud of the interventions we made in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic that ensured that our state recorded one of the least casualties and fatalities in the country. Thank you for your cooperation in this regard. Needless to say, the fight against this unseen enemy is far from over. I implore you to remain vigilant until we conquer this foe.”
