Dickson said that funds had been set aside already for the completion of the airport with a 3.5 kilometre runway.

He also said very soon, government is expecting the Chinese $6 billion investment in the Brass Fertilizer project which he noted will further boost the economy of the state.

The governor, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary,  Francis Agbo, gave the assurance at the monthly Praise Night, in Yenagoa.

Dickson said the airport project which was the brainchild of his administration has now been scheduled for completion by the second quarter of this year as the earlier date for completion (2019) is too late.

He expressed government’s commitment to ensure prudent management of its finances by focusing on the task of delivering the airport project, noting that there was still more work to be done particularly in the area of constructing a network of roads and bridges to open up the state.

His words: “There is still work to be done, there are still more roads to be built, we have to take the Sagbama Road to Ekeremor.”

According to him, former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo “will be visiting in the next two weeks to unveil our medical investments to the world.  In a recession, we built a brand new university from nothing.”
