The Bayelsa State Government on Saturday restated its commitment to development of all parts of the state despite dwindling resources from the federation account.

Commissioner for Works, Mr Lawrence Erujakpor made the pledge while conducting members of Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE) on a project tour of projects in the state as part of its 2015 All Editors Conference in Yenagoa.

The monthly revenue of the state has nosedived from N18bn in 2012 to N9bn as at July 2015.

Erujakpor regretted that the revenue drop had adversely affected the pace of construction activities but added that the government was judiciously deploying the available resources to ensure value for money.

He explained that the drop in revenue had compelled the government to shift the deadlines for most of the ongoing projects adding that the rainy season had also caused some delays.

Erujakpor told the NGE members that the state government was implementing a deliberate policy of spreading development projects to all parts of the state to ensure even development.

Some of the projects sites visited include 3-star hotel projects, the N3.8bn governor’s office project, the golf course, multi-door court house, music school and language school.

Others are the medical diagnostic complex, drug distribution mart, the cargo airport, Ogobiri, Ogbia-Nembe road amongst

The editors also visited Oloibiri Well 1, in Ogbia local government area, where oil was first struck in commercial quantities.
