“We are not misusing the trust and as a government, we are out to make sure that whatever that is desirous, whatever that is good for the people of Bayelsa state, gets to them as a people.
“We have been about a year plus and we will continue to do this transparency but to put it straight away is that this government has embarked on a lot of projects; what we want to tell all Bayelsans today is that none of these projects will be abandoned halfway.
