Bayelsa to link 3 senatorial zones by road
The Bayelsa Government, on Friday, restated its commitment to link the three senatorial zones in the state by road, to accelerate economic growth.
Mr Lawrence Ehwrudjakpo, the state Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure Development, said this in Kaiama while inspecting some ongoing projects in the area.
Ehwrudjakpo expressed satisfaction with the ongoing Sagbama/Ekeremor road project in Bayelsa West-Senatorial zone, which he described as one of the key projects in the state.
Yes, there is no money in the state, but there are still some key projects we cannot do without.
We will still be working with the available resources to ensure that our state is developed.
On the state of internal roads, we are still putting efforts to make movement of vehicles easier.
Re-construction work is ongoing at old assembly link-road, Opolo-Elebele, Igbogene glory-land drive among others.
The Igbogene glory-land drive is the most vital road because that is the entrance to the state; so, you cannot say that you want to make your state a Dubai and all the roads leading to it are deplorable.
“We will provide the needed infrastructure for the people and create an enabling environment for business,” he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that some of the projects inspected by the commissioner included the new Governor/Deputy Governor’s Office, House Officer’s quarter, FMC and a Helipad.
Others were the Old Assembly road, Glory-land drive, Ecumenical centre, Opolo-eleble road and new NYSC permanent orientation camp.
