Governor Douye Diri of Bayelsa State has charged members of the state executive council not to forget that their performance is the yardstick to judge their success in office.
Diri gave the charge on Wednesday during the 85th weekly state executive council meeting in Government House, Yenagoa.
He urged the cabinet members to put in their best in positively projecting the image of the administration, expressing satisfaction with the feedback on their commitment so far, saying it was an indication that the state was making good progress.
The governor charged them to do more in the second half of their third year in office, stressing that the race was not over yet.
Diri stated: “Your performance is the yardstick by which the generality of Bayelsans judge whether you are doing well or not. I am sure that every commissioner is putting up his best to relate with the public and also to project this administration in very good light.
“So far, the reports we have received from the public indicate that you are doing well and, by extension, we are doing well.
“So, I charge you once again that in this second half of our third year in office to do more than what you have done already. It is very likely that you will feel that you have done so much. But you are running a race and until you have crossed the line, you have won.”
He equally thanked Bayelsa people for their support to his administration and pledged that they would not fail them.
He promised to do more on human capacity building and infrastructure development within the available resources of the state.
