Since creation of the State, petroleum & power matters had been handled by different ministries/parastatal. This trend had diffused the state’s focus & policy coherence in responding to energy matters at both local & national levels. Merger of power sector & office of the special adviser on petroleum gave birth to the Ministry of Energy as a response to the state Energy challenges. Energy industry calls for an integrated and focused planning. The ministry was later renamed Ministry of Power with the responsibility of providing the energy security that Bayelsa State needs in order to realise it’s full technological, industrial, economical & social development potentials.
