The Bayelsa State governor, Seriake Dickson, has appointed a new head for the state civil service.
Mr Dickson has also appointed 32 new permanent secretaries “to fill existing vacancies in the civil service,” a statement said.
The new acting head of service, Biobelemoye Charles-Onyeama, is said to be the most senior permanent secretary in Bayelsa civil service.
Mrs Charles-Onyeama’s appointment followed the retirement of the former head of service, Luka Obiri.
The appointments were announced on Tuesday through a statement from Mr Dickson’s spokesperson, Fidelis Soriwei.
According to the statement, “The appointments are based on seniority in service, meritorious service and fair spread among the Local Government Areas of the state”.
The new permanent secretaries would be sworn in on Friday by Mr Dickson.
Mr Dickson’s second term ends in February next year.
The governor’s party, the Peoples Democracy Party, was trounced in the Saturday’s governorship election in the state by the All Progressives Congress.
