Dickson swears in new Head of Service

Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State, yesterday, charged the newly sworn in Head of Service, Dr. Josephine Igodo, to instill the virtues of discipline, hard work and ensure that public servants stay clear of partisan politics, particularly as the general elections draw near.

Dickson gave the charge at the swearing-in ceremony of Dr. Igodo following the retirement of the out-gone Head of Service, Sir Fraser Okuoru, at the Executive Council Chambers of Government House, Yenagoa.

The governor, who noted that Igodo’s appointment as Head of Service was coming at a time when political activities were being heightened in the state and country, admonished public servants not to constitute themselves into what he described as an arm of the opposition in the polity.

He said: “The public service must sit up. As the head of the government, I take decisions without political considerations in order to insulate the public service from the pressures and travails of those of us who are in the political life.”
