Governor of Bayelsa State, Hon. Seriake Dickson, has earmarked the sum of N2billion for completing a number of infrastructural projects across the state.

The governor disclosed this in Yenagoa, the state capital, during his monthly transparency programme on the state’s income and expenditures.

He revealed that a draft had been issued to multinational construction company, Julius Berger, saying the money is meant to mobilise the company to speed up action on ongoing projects, including dualisation of Isaac Boro Expressway, one of the major roads in the state capital.

Dickson also said the company has concluded plans to invest in the building of high-rise residential apartments to ease the accommodation challenges in Yenagoa.

Denying the allegation that the construction company abandoned work in the state as a result of lack of funds, he said: “Our business, as a government, is to work for the betterment of our state, while our detractors are busy spreading rumours.”
