Blame Jonathan, National Assembly members for Bayelsa's sorry state

- Chief Perekeme Kpodoh, who is from Bayelsa, reveals that the state only has two community markets and no major business like some other states
Kpodoh blames former President Goodluck Jonathan and the National Assembly members for abandoning the state
- He argues the crime rate in the state will reduce with thriving business

Chief Perekeme Kpodoh, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has blamed an alleged diversion and misuse of approved funds by past administrations and National Assembly members for the sorry state of Bayelsa state.Kpodoh, a former security adviser to the Bayelsa state government, further lamented that members of the National Assembly, instead of using constituency funds allocated to them to accelerate development of the state, diverted the money to private pockets and non-development ventures.He however noted that some parts of the state now have new public schools, improvement in healthcare facilities, roads and other public infrastructures.In a statement made available to Dakingsweb late Monday, November 27, Chief Kpodoh said the impunity by state and National Assembly members started under the administrations of Dr Goodluck Jonathan and Chief Timipre Sylva.
“Go to other states created alongside Bayelsa, the rate of development is rapid. And it is because most of the state and National Assembly members are not called to account for stewardship.“They don't use constituency fund for the good and development of infrastructures in their constituents.“Look at Bayelsa, all the blames go to the state government.“These senators and House of Assembly members and House of Representative don't even visit their constituents.“Others who visit, do so due to threats of recall. Out of the monies received as constituency fund, they pay school fees for a few and report that they have done their constituency projects.“In Delta alone, Senator James Manager has built bridges and attracted others to his constituency. ButBayelsa senators are known as Owambe and ‘big grammar senators and representative’.“What are our senators doing with their constituency funds? Where are the senatorial projects? All they do is buy toiletries and pay school fees for students after they are threatened with recalls,”he alleged. An angry Kpodoh continued:“Visit Delta state; James Manager is known to have constructed a bridge for his people from Torogbane to Tuomo-Ozobo road as constituency project.“That is the senator that knows the needs of the people. Bayelsa people should rise up and demand answers from elected political office holders.“They should be held accountable for the slow development because they have not assisted the state in anyway,” he charged the people."Chief Kpodoh said those defending the past administrations of Dr Goodluck Jonathan and Chief Timipre Sylva should have a rethink.“We cannot be listening to the rubbish people talk about. Past governors should come and give account of stewardship. These people have taken us for a ride for 17 years."“It is time for accountability. The state is backward compared to other states. You can't count the number of vehicles that enter into Lagos because business is striving.“But at the entry point into Yenagoa, there is heavy security presence because business is low and nearly non-existence. If business is booming, such security presence will stop,”he said.He claimed that the state lacked any major market.
According to him, the state only has two community markets in Swali and Opolo.“What we need is a major market such the Onitsha market. We need a huge market such as the Alaba International Market in Yenagoa.“These markets promote business activities and lead to major increase in Revenue for the state.“Look at Cross Rivers state; they have just signed a Calabar Sea Port project.“The present government, after failed attempts by past administrations, has signed the Agge Sea Port. Bayelsa should now go further to build a major market to promote business and employ youths,”he advised.
