Bayelsa State government yesterday released plan for elaborate state reception to honour outgoing President Goodluck Jonathan, who is from the state.

Jonathan is expected to hand over state affairs to incoming President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, on May 29 at the Eagle Square, Abuja.

Briefing newsmen yesterday, Information Commissioner, Osueme Bikile, said the state government was doing this because Governor Seriake Dickson wants to demonstrate the love of the people of Bayelsa for the outgoing president.

Activities for the threeday event, according to the commissioner, will begin at 3pm when the president would be received at t Government House Helipad by the governor and other eminent Bayelsans.

He said the president would then proceed to the Gabriel Okara Cultural Centre for a civic reception by the state government and thereafter proceed to his home town, Otuoke in Ogbia Local Government Area, where he will also be received by traditional rulers in yet another civic reception.

Another reception will be hosted by the state government at the Banquet Hall later in the evening; the President will attend an interdenominational church service at St. Peters Anglican Church in Yenagoa the following day, Saturday.

The commissioner, while thanking people of the state for the support they have given the president in his six years in the Presidency, said there will be restriction on some roads in the metropolis and apologised to the people for the inconveniences such arrangement might cause them.

He, however, said all programmes were strictly by invitation as those without invitation would not be allowed into venue of any of the events for security reasons.
