Governor Seriake Dickson has given the Capital city Development Authority (CCDA) the mandate to employ fifty persons in the
Development Control Department of the Authority.
The Governor gave the mandate during the commissioning of the Authority’s Development Control Equipment at the premises of the CCDA along Sani Abacha Expressway, Yenagoa.
According to Governor Dickson, the purpose of the equipment is to make Yenagoa a decent, modern and well planned capital city, stressing that, Government was determined to change the face of Yenagoa from a slum to a befitting city.
“And, that is why you can see all the developments going on; road and bridge construction and other infrastructure”.
All these will come to naught if the residents of Yenagoa do not understand our vision and where we are taking our state to” the Governor explained.
He reminded the Capital City Development Authority of their
responsibility to ensure that building permits are issued to persons who comply with the law and those who refuse to comply are also punished as stipulated by the law.
Hon. Dickson equally mandated the CCDA to ensure that structures that do not conform to the regulations of the Yenagoa master plan are demolished.
The Executive Secretary of CCDA, Chief Iboro Ige Idaba and his team were directed to formally invite developers to submit their building plans within a stipulated time frame in line with the new mandate. The Governor who was issued 3 application forms for his building plan, called on all Bayelsans and residents of Yenagoa, who have property to visit CCDA to regularise their building plans.
In his remarks, the Commissioner for the Capital City Development Authority, Mr. Zuwa Konuga, disclosed that the equipment was provided to enable the Authority to perform its duty maximally.
Governor Dickson also undertook an inspection tour of the sand filling of the Ox-bow lake area, construction of infrastructure as well as the new pavilion project.
