Yenagoa—Governor Douye Diri of Bayelsa State has reaffirmed the commitment of the state government to commence the construction of the long-abandoned Nembe-Brass road.
The governor stated this when he received the leadership of the Nembe-Se Congress led by its president, Professor M.I Godwin Egein on a courtesy visit to Government House, Yenagoa.
Diri reiterated that the benefits of the road could not be overemphasized, adding that the government would by April flag off the road project.
“The Nembe-Brass road will kick off under our watch. This road, if constructed, will have a huge economic benefit to the State. This is one of the roads that has security embedded in it, so we will do all it takes to commence that road project”, he assured.
