The governor spoke at a state banquet held at the DSP Alamieyeseigha Memorial Hall, Government House, Yenagoa as part of activities marking the 20th anniversary of Bayelsa creation.
The event, held at the weekend, was attended by founding fathers of the state, leaders and elders from various communities, state executive council members, members of the state House of Assembly, religious leaders, security heads and traditional rulers.
According to governor Dickson, “It is unfortunate that a few misguided people from within and without continue to engage in activities capable of scaring investors and visitors to this region.
“The region is bleeding. Businesses already established even for decades are relocating and meanwhile the irony of it is that our economic prosperity and survival depend on peace and stability in our communities, in our state and in our region.”
