THE Deputy Governor of Bayelsa State, Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo, has said that the state governor, Douye Diri, is using his current foreign trip to woo investors to boost the economy of the state.
Ewhrudjakpo spoke in an interview with reporters shortly after the State Executive Council meeting in Yenagoa, on Wednesday.
He said, “Our governor is out of the state and the country for the betterment of all of us. It is legitimate, proper and necessary; it is the right cause to go.
“I want to use this opportunity to denounce and dissuade those who are making a meal out of the absence of the governor.
“We believe that we have procedures and the governor deserves the attention he deserves to give to investors so that investors are brought to our state as no system that is not interacting with any other system can be very effective. What makes an economy a viable economy is the external investment into the economy.”
