The Ox-Bow lake, an example of Bayelsa's tourism potential

Bayelsa governor, Seriake Dickson has disclosed plans to make Agge Community, off the Atlantic coast in Ekeremor Local Government Council, the tourism base of Bayelsa.

Dickson, represented by the Deputy Governor, John Jonah, made this known at a reception ceremony held in Aghoro Community for the Special Adviser to the Bayelsa Governor on Political Affairs, Fred Agbedi.

He said that Agge had been scheduled to be the tourism base of Bayelsa, adding that in its efforts at opening up the area for development, the state government had started a deep sea water port in the community.

“Above all, the Bayelsa West Senatorial District road will end up at Agge. We are hopeful that we will get the road there before the end of our four years. These are all that have been projected by this government for the area. It may not happen overnight, but there are definite plans that the government has drawn up for Bayelsa West Senatorial district,” he said.

“We have already commissioned agents to carry out survey of the area and map out strategic points.” 

Agbedi commended Dickson for appointing more people from the community into government positions and called for more support to the administration, saying that the administration was ready to meet the expectations of the people.
