On transparency we believe that it is the right of the people of the state, to know what funds accure to the coffers of the state and the various local government councils and how they are utilized.
This is the only way to secure the trust and confidence of the people in whom sovereignty lies. ‘I have directed all local government chairmen to comply with this paradigm shift on the issue of transparency, probity and accountability, to reflect the new Bayelsa we are building.’
