Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State in continuation of his community based campaign tour, at the weekend, visited the country home of the former state governor and the All Progressives Congress candidate, Chief Timipre Sylva, assuring the people of his administration’s resolve to award the multi- billion naira Nembe-Brass Road during the first quarter of 2016, if re-elected for a second term in office.
Dickson, who was received by the Okpoama Council of chiefs, commended the people of the area for their support and the large turnout, adding that it was a testimony to the fact that the people of Brass local government area were in support of the PDP-led administration.
He said the road project would be given attention as it would enable the administration achieve its policy of linking up mainland Yenagoa up to the Atlantic Ocean to enhance socio-economic development.
According to him, clearing and sand filling would be done in earnest as soon as the project is awarded to a competent contractor.
