Bayelsa community groans over lack of access road
Though endowed with arable farmlands and agro/aqua-culture wealth, Yenaka community in Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State has continued to groan over dearth of socio-infrastructure, painfully indigenes still travel by manually rowed canoe due absence of access road to the community.
Peeved by the development, the Yenaka Development Elite (YDE) has regretted that even in the present democratic dispensation, t civil servants from the area ply hand pulling canoe home at the close of work.
President of the group, Fanivie Ogilizibe, lamented that cost of foodstuff and other household items had skyrocket because of lack of access road to the community, while the few traders in the community often built cost of water transportation to the selling price of commodities in the area.
Speaking with the Nigerian Tribune, Ogilizibe averred that Yenaka community regreted producing their daughter, who was a minister who did little or nothing to alleviate their plight.
He submitted that while other communities had been connected by road to the state capital, Yenagoa, Yenaka still remained cut off from civilization with no road, water and poor health centre with no drugs and modern health facilities to cater for emergency situations.
He submitted that despite the huge foreign currencies that were allegedly found in several properties own by the minister, she could not help construct road to ameliorate the situation in her community, Yenaka.
He regretted that the minister blew up the opportunity to bring development to the community, stressing that all the money she amassed was spent on self aggrandizement.
He, therefore, appealed to Governor Seriake Dickson to come to their aid by constructing a road to link the community (Yenaka) to the city capital, Yenagoa.
