Bayelsa govt demolishes Dickson’s private residence

A One-storey building owned by the Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson situated along Opolo/AIT road, Yenagoa was demolished yesterday for obstructing the Right of Way as well as intruding on the State Capital City Master Plan.

The structure was marked for demolition by the CCDA on June 28, 2012 for intruding in the Master Plan, (MPI) and Right of Way, (ROW).

The exercise, which commenced at 12:48pm was supervised by the State Deputy Governor, Rear Admiral Gboribiogha John Jonah, (retd), the State Commissioner of Works and Infrastructure, Mr. Lawrence Ehwrudjakpor, the State Commissioner of Information and Orientation, Deacon Markson Fefegha, Commissioner for State Capital City Development, Mr. Konugha Zuwa and other top government functionaries.

Other structures affected included that of the Director General of State Agency for the Control of AIDS (SACA), Dr. Temple Iluma.

Addressing newsmen, the deputy governor said the location of the governor’s house obstructed the Right of Way and as a result no compensation would be paid.

In line with the development control of the CCDA and urban renewal of the state, he said government awarded contract for the dualisation of the road, stressing that anyone who has built structures on the right of way should expect such buildings to be demolished.

The deputy governor remarked that, “we have been talking about the master plan as well as some areas where we have to carry out urban renewal.

“For the master plan, we expect every builder to go and get clearance before he or she starts to build to see the extent that he can go outside the road.
