Bayelsa State Governor Seriake Dickson has ordered the State Civil Service Commission to begin the process for the recruitment of 1000 young graduates.

Dickson gave the order in Yenagoa over the weekend, adding that they would write an entry examination to qualify for employment into the public service.

“All those, who want to make a career in the civil service, particularly young graduates that, these reforms will throw a lot of opportunities to you,” the governor added.

“I have just directed the recruitment of 1000 young graduates and the process will commence soon. In the next couple of days or weeks, I will also inaugurate the, ‘Back To Productivity Project’, which is aimed at encouraging those, who want to start-up businesses of their own, including those, who want to voluntarily leave the public service.”

Accordingly, he called on the Federal Government “to demonstrate the same presidential leadership and direction on the issue of restructuring the country.

“President Muhammadu Buhari would go down in history as a great Nigerian President” who responded to the yearnings of the citizenry.

“I think fundamentally, the act itself is a noble one. I congratulate the awardees and the president. I am in support of what has been done, even though the timing of it and the circumstances, have given some coloration to it. There issues of megalith raised but I think the substance of it is commendable.”
