A group under the auspices of Bayelsa Democracy and Development Initiative (BDDI) has charged its members to be united, committed and properly coordinated to successfully actualize the 2016 government project in the state.
Speaking yesterday at the inauguration of coordinators for the eight local government areas of the state in Yenagoa, Pastor Ken Z. Egberi, the Vice Chairman enjoined them to always build synergy between the state officials and the local government areas.
He made it clear that the struggle for social justice and good governance is a serious venture adding that both the centre and the local government coordinators cannot work independently.
Pastor Egberi directed the coordinators to visit their respective local governments and shop for credible persons to serve as ward coordinators of the Bayelsa Democracy and Development Initiative who will not destabilize the NGO.
The secretary of the BDDI, Dr. Ekiyor Welson in a brief remark cautioned that the era where a governorship aspirant expects ‘cabals’ to endorse such people and impose the individual on the masses was over.
Dr. Welson made it clear that while governorship aspirants seek endorsement from certain influential persons, BDDI will support an aspirant who has grassroots support to succeed.
The BDDI scribe charged the coordinators to regard their responsibilities at the local government areas as challenging considering the fact that to unseat an incumbent administration is not an easy task.
Responding on behalf of the coordinators, Chief George Mabinton from Yenagoa local government area expressed optimism that with the caliber of coordinators in the eight local governments, the NGO has the capacity to salvage the state by the will of God.
