Dear Bayelsan Diaspora,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Bayelsa state is one of the most successful states in Nigeria and was created out of Rivers State in the final years of the 20th century, in 1996. The state is a product of Sani Abacha’s military government. Thus, the naming of the state was a derivative of the first few letters of the major local government area names. Brass, Yenagoa, and Sagbama are the names of the local governments whose first letters were used to come up with the name Bayelsa.
Bayelsa is a destination of choice for Diaspora and most investors. The security and infrastructural amenities are excellent. The state’s social-political environment is suitable for business and investments.
