Bayelsa State Governor, Hon. Seriake Dickson has continued to receive thumbs-up for putting world-class infrastructures in place, to drive the socio-economic development process of the state, despite its financial and environmental challenges.

Members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Reconciliation Committee, including former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Engr Muhammed Abba-Gana gave the commendation, while speaking with newsmen in Yenagoa, shortly after visiting some completed and ongoing projects embarked upon by the Dickson-led administration in the State.

The projects visited, include the state International Airport, Five Star Hotel, public and executive wings of the Government House Hospital, Gulf Course, Polo Club, Driving and Music Schools as well as several roads, within and outside the Yenagoa metropolis.

Describing the projects as comprehensive and people-oriented, Engr Abba-Gana said, the PDP was proud of the governor’s achievements in office and called on other leaders to emulate his example of transparent and accountable leadership.

According to the former minister, Governor Dickson is adopting a viable development model by investing in projects that promote the development of human capacity and physical infrastructures to attract reputable investors to the state, which he noted, has enormous potentials to be harnessed for rapid economic growth.

He described the state Diagnostic Centre as one of the best in the world, with the capacity to drive medical tourism, and, therefore, called on both Nigerians and foreigners to avail themselves of the services being provided at the centre.

Abba-Gana, who prayed God to protect Hon. Dickson, urged the people of Bayelsa State to rally round their governor, irrespective of their political differences, in order to take the state to enviable heights in the near future.

In their separate remarks, a former Member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Mahmoud Bida and Hajiya Hauwa Musa Kida said, they were not only impressed with the number and quality of the projects on the ground, but that the present administration’s efforts such as the Airport would encourage investors and development partners to take the state more seriously.

While calling for more support for the Governor, they observed that the achievements of the state government in the last five years speak volumes of his prudent management of scarce resources, adding that, all the projects visited are of high standard and will stand the test of time.
