He said he was satisfied with the quality and pace of work on the road projects which consisted of asphalt and concrete roads.

He said that the government remained determined to complete ongoing projects so it could embark on new ones, pointing out that the contractors kept setting standards because of monitoring and evaluation.

“We are continuing with the policy of strict supervision of projects which keeps our contractors on their toes. As we speak, almost all the 20 internal roads approved for construction are ready for use.

“The remaining three are nearing completion and will be rounded off by April, and hopefully they will be put to use for the benefit of Bayelsa people,” Teibowei said.

Teibowei was accompanied on the inspection by the Commissioner of Information, Orientation and Strategy, Mr. Ayiba Duba, and top officials of the Ministry of Works and Infrastructure.

Duba, however, applauded the patience of residents along the corridors of ongoing projects and appealed to them to bear with the government.

“The saying goes that for you to make an omelette, eggs must be broken. As we went around project sites, we can see that the ongoing jobs are causing some discomfort and that is the sacrifice required to have improved social amenities.

“The government is a sensitive and people-centered one and we are aware of the development needs of the Bayelsa people. We are certainly going to the next phase of the jobs to reach more people,” he said. (NAN)
