Indigenes of the Angalabiri, Ofoni, Ayamasa and Aleibiri in Sagbama and Ekeremor local government area of Bayelsa state weekend commended Governor Seriake Dickson over the decision to take over the construction of the 90 kilometre Sagabma/Ekeremor road ‎project.
The 90 kilometre road project, which was initiated under the late Melford Okilo administration in 1979 and handed to the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) ran into controversy when the Governor Seriake Dickson administration accused the NDDC of slow pace of work and took over the project.
According to the state government, the project ‎which is 63 per cent complete, was awarded to Dantata and Soweo and Straco for N20billion and will be fully completed in December 2018 .
 The indigenes of the four communities of Ekeremor and Sagbama, who trooped out in their numbers to welcome the State Governor ,Hon. Seriake Dickson during his tour of the project, described the near completion of the project as welcomed and will fast track development and increase economic activities in their area.
In each of the communities, the elated indigenes praised the State Governor, Hon. Seriake Dickson for his effort to construct the road which they say will fast track development and increase economic activities in their area.
They assured him of their unalloyed support to his administration and expressed confidence that with what the governor has done and is still doing, there is no doubt that their communities will not remain the same after his tenure.
At the climax of the tour in Aleibiri, a spokesman for the Aleibiri Federated Communities said since 1979 during the second republic under Chief Melford Okilo that the road was conceived, no administration was able to execute it.
He said: “It is in this context that when in 2012 you came on board and announced the take over of the project and your desire to go all out to construct the road, not many thought that it would ever see the light of the day.
” Your Excellency sir, today you have shamed the doubting Thomas, the cynics, the political jabbers and all those who have over the years played politics with this critical economic road. We lack words to appreciate you for what you have done for us as a people. You have wiped away our tears, you have made us feel that we are part of this country”.
In his speech, the Bayelsa State Governor, Hon. Seriake Dickson thanked the people for the reception and show of love, saying what they are experiencing is a promise made in 2012 and is now being fulfilled.
According to him:  “it is one of the three Senatorial road projects he promised to deliver in order to open up the state from three flanks.”
He assured them that ‎by December all manner of vehicles will travel along the road and directed the Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure to make that a reality as he would be coming back during the yuletide season.
The governor, who spoke mainly in the native Ijaw language, explained that the need to connect communities in the state to the capital Yenagoa necessitated the construction of the three senatorial roads.
While assuring them of the commitment of his government to improve on their living conditions, the governor announced that the few communities around the area that are yet to be connected to the national grid will soon be hooked up..
Dickson was accompanied on the tour by some ‎eminent personalities including the former Deputy Governor of Sokoto State, Murktar Shagari who also expressed surprise at the boldness of the governor to construct the road in a difficult terrain that is very swampy.
He said even though it was obvious recession slowed ‎down the work the governor must be given kudos for continuing with it even with the persistent economic hardship in the country.
‎It would be racalled that the Sagbama/Ekeremor road is one of the many legacy projects of the present administration was awarded at the cost of N30 billion to both Dantata-Sawoe and Setraco‎ and when fully completed will make access to far flunged communities in the Bayelsa West senatorial zone easy.
