Governor of Bayelsa state Mr Seriake Dickson has rejected the slow momentum of work on USD 22 billion facilities, after fifteen years of the inauguration of the Brass Liquefied Natural Gas Project.

Dickson called on President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently address the bottlenecks militating against the commencement of the project for which the House of Representatives also set up a probe panel last week.

The lawmakers had done a resolution to set up an ad-hoc commision to probe the implementing of the multi-billion dollars project alleged to have been poorly managed.

According to the conclusion the previous President Olusegun Obasanjo, the project was originally established with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, (NNPC) owning 49 percent while other affiliates, comprising Conoco Phillips, ENI and Chevron, also held some stakes.

But the governor who spoke throughout to stakeholders meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Yenagoa, said the call had become imperative in view of what he stated as the unacceptable lack of federal projects in the state.
