The Politics of Unending Looting: More than 200 vehicles belonging to Bayelsa govt missing – Official

March 22, 2012

ABUJA, – More than 200 vehicles belonging to the Bayelsa State Government have been illegally carted away by political appointees under the immediate past administration of the State, a Bayelsa spokesperson alleged.
A close aide to incumbent Governor, Seriake Dickson told reporters that the discovery was made after an astronomical presentation for newer vehicles was made to the new administration, bringing into question the whereabouts of the missing vehicles.

“Virtually all the vehicles in the fleet of the Government House, had been driven away by Sylva’s aides, shortly before the Supreme Court sacked the administration,” the aide said.

The Seriake Dickson administration has however vowed it would not procure the new vehicles as presented to the administration and ordered that the carted vehicles be returned by ex-political appointees or face the wrath of the law.

It was reported that the Seriake Dickson administration has set up a committee saddled with the responsibility of ensuring the returns of all missing government properties in custody of members of the former administration.
