The Governor of Bayelsa State, His Excellency, Mr. Seriake Dickson has made the Ijaw nation proud of his developmental strides. Indeed, Nigerians in every divide have acknowledged the good works of the Governor.

We particularly commend the indefatigable Governor for the Bayelsa International Cargo Airport which has just been opened for commercial activities. This is first of its own kind in the Ijawland. This Airport Project has made the marginalised and neglected Ijaw people to feel at home in the Nigerian project.

The Ijaw nation is very grateful to the country man Governor. History will forever be kind to him for these laudable projects. The completion of the age-long three senatorial districts roads across State is another remarkable achievements of the Governor. Today, Ekeremor people and all surrounding towns and villages in the LGA can now boast of road network to their homes. In the same vein, Nembe people are also celebrating road network in their terrain.

Governor Seriake has broken the jinx in Ijawland. He has made Nigerians to know that even the coastal towns in the Niger Delta can be accessed by road networks. The Airport project and his massive road networks crisscrossing towns and villages in the State are going to benefit and improve the economic lives of the neglected Ijaw people across the Niger Delta. IYC therefore, commends the Governor for his pragmatic works.
