No fewer than 20 road, education, health, media and agricultural projects will be inaugurated during the second anniversary in the office of the Bayelsa State Governor, Senator Douye Diri, on February 14.

The projects include those inherited from the past administration and completed in the last year and others initiated by the Diri government during the same period.

The anniversary activities will commence a week before February 14 and will continue till the end of the month due to the number of projects lined up for the inauguration.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is expected to flag off a bridge project across River Nun at Angiama.

Diri, at the weekend, inspected some of the projects at various stages of completion. They include the Yenagoa-Oporoma road, Bayelsa State Mega Media Complex for Radio Bayelsa, Niger Delta Television and the Bayelsa Newspaper Corporation, among others

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary, Daniel Alabrah, said the Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Moses Teibowei, disclosed that between 20 and 30 projects in various sectors would be ready for commissioning.

Mr. Teibowei said the contractors had been mobilised and mandated to complete the projects within a specific time in readiness for their commissioning.

He said: “Between 20 and 30 projects should be ready, not only in the Ministry of Works and Infrastructure but also in education, health, agriculture and other sectors.

“My target is to complete assigned projects and I strongly believe that some of the projects visited will be completed.”
