The Bayelsa State gov­ernor, Hon. Seriake Dickson in continuation of his community based cam­paign tour, at the weekend visited the Country home of the former governor and the All Progressives Congress candidate, Chief Timipre Sylva, assuring them 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.

The award of the contract as assured by the governor is in addition to the on-going Ogbia/ Nembe road project and other
developmental projects sited in the area. The Governor who was received by the Okpoama Council of chiefs commended the people of the area for their support and the large turnout, adding “this is a testimony to the fact that the people of Brass local government area are in support of the PDP led admin­istration.”

On the project, he said that it would be given due attention as it would enable the administra­tion achieve its policy to link up the State to the Atlantic Ocean to enhance socio-economic de­velopment.

According to the governor, clearing and sand filling would be done in earnest as soon as the project is awarded to a com­petent contractor.

Commenting on the State Maritime Academy sited in Okpoma by the present ad­ministration, Governor Dick­son expressed concern that the Institution is yet to function as expected due to financial con­straints.

He explained that his admin­istration went into partnership with the Polish government, noting that the application for the project was not successful.

The governor also visited Odioma, Ewoama and Twon Brass and lauded the people for the warm reception accorded his campaign team and their sense of maturity as well as en­lightenment on political issues.

While urging the Brass people to vote for the PDP, Governor Dickson stressed the need for peaceful election, stating that he has no personal problems with the candidate of the main opposition party in the State.

Dignitaries who gave soli­darity speeches at the rally were the Deputy Governor, Rear Ad­miral Gboribiogha John Jonah, Acting PDP chairman, Chief Serena Dokubo Spiff, Senator Nimi Barigha Amange, Kind Amalate Turner and the Chair­man of the Brass Local Gov­ernment, Mr. Andy Obed.
