Protest rocks NASS over exclusion of Bayelsa in the Ambassadorial List



Aggrieved Bayelsa State people, protesting the exclusion of the state from the ambassadorial list sent to the Senate last week for screening and confirmation by President Muhammadu Buhari defied heavy downpour in Abuja, yesterday, to take their case to the National Assembly.

The protesters, under the platform of Concerned Bayelsa Indigenes, whose action at the National Assembly gate temporarily halted vehicular movement for some minutes, said that the non-inclusion of any indigene of the state in the list was an injustice that must be addressed immediately.

The group accused President Buhari of deliberately sidelining Bayelsa State in major appointments, one of which was the recent appointments of permanent secretaries.

Coordinator of the group, Bodi Arerebo, told newsmen during the protest that the President’s action was unfair to the state he said campaigned vigorously for his victory at the 2015 presidential poll, against its indigene, Goodluck Jonathan, who held sway at the time as President.
