The Bayelsa government says that with the pace and quality of work at the 23 kilometre Igbogene ring road, the 24-month completion date from Jan 2021 onwards is realisable.
Mr Ebiye Tarabina, Chairman of the Directorate for Project Monitoring and Evaluation, who made the observation on Saturday said he was impressed by the high standard and speed of work.
He reiterated the mandate of the Directorate to ensure quality control on government projects across the state adding that inspection of ongoing projects would be a continuous exercise.
He commended the contractor handling the road from Igbogene area of Yenagoa to AIT Ring Road and urged the firm to sustain the tempo as the Directorate would not hesitate to do its job of ensuring compliance.
The chairman said one of the objectives of the Douye Diri led administration in embarking on infrastructural development was to create employment opportunities for the teeming youths in the state.
He said investment in these projects was to stimulate the economy of the state due to the government’s judicious application of state resources to meet the pressing needs of the people.
The Project Manager of the Construction firm, Luberik Construction Company Denios Bio appreciated the government of Bayelsa for the confidence reposed on it to handle the projects.
