The Deputy Governor, Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo recently revealed this at the second round of local government meetings with traditional rulers across the state, which began with Ekeremor Council Area on Thursday in his office in Yenagoa.
According to him, opening registers to profile visitors and non-indigenes engaged in business is one of the measures needed to tackle insecurity, so it has to be taken seriously.
He added that not knowing the number and types of people carrying out all sorts of activities in Bayelsa forests, farmlands and rivers is no longer acceptable.
His words, “We are going to follow-up our directive now. So you must cooperate with government to secure our communities because as you all know, security is a collective responsibility.”
“Only last month, the National Security Adviser had written and announced that it is now compulsory for all traditional rulers in their communities to have a book to register visitors that come to their communities and what they came to do.”
“You can see that what we discussed at the last meeting was preemptive of that announcement and the action the Federal Government is taking now. It means we are on the right course.”
