"Bayelsa State said rumour mongering is hindering

the state’s development. The Bayelsa State Government has concluded plans to set up a committee to address “the ugly

trend of rumour-mongering in the state”. The committee is to fish out actors behind

rumour-mongering “which has been found

inimical to the development of the state”. The Chief Press Secretary to the Bayelsa State

Governor, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, made the

announcement in a statement on

Saturday in

Yenagoa. Mr. Iworiso-Markson said that Gov. Seriake Dickson was worried by the “disturbing trend of rumour-mongering in the state.” “Gov. Dickson has decided to set up a high-

powered committee to address the ugly trend of

rumour-mongering in the state. “A situation whereby the person and office of the

governor are always at the receiving end of

rumour-mongering is quite disturbing to the

government,” Mr. Iworiso-Markson said. According to the statement, the committee which

will be inaugurated next week, will be tasked with

the responsibility of finding a permanent solution

to rumour-mongering in the state. He said that the committee would be saddled

with the responsibility of fishing out persons who

made it a habit to peddle rumours and spread

false and misleading information to the public'' (NAN)
