Bayelsa renames major road after late Ijaw leader
Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State on Thursday showered encomiums on the late Chief Christopher Pere Ajuwa, describing him as an astute politician, Ijaw leader and quintessential statesman whose death left a major vacuum in the state and the Ijaw Nation at large.
Speaking at the funeral service in honour of the deceased at the Chief DSP Alamieyeseigha Banquet Hall in Yenagoa, Dickson remarked that his contributions to the socio-economic and political growth of Bayelsa State and Nigeria would be forever remembered.
According to him, the late Ajuwa had an infectious spirit, which was easily noticed, just as he also had to his credit the habit of empowering young Bayelsans and Nigerians through his vast business concerns and robust philanthropy.
For his numerous and outstanding contributions, the governor renamed the popular Azikoro road after him which he said has become the culture of his administration to honour every true son and daughter of the state who made significant impression in various areas.
The governor assured the family that they can count on his administration to support them going forward and also encouraged them to continue to carry and sustain his good name and the many great legacies he left behind.
The late Ajuwa passed on early this year at the age of 69 after a brief illness and would be laid to rest this weekend.
