President Bola Tinubu has commissioned the 25.735 km Ogbia-Nembe road, a crucial infrastructure project connecting 14 communities in Bayelsa State.

Findings revealed that the 14 benefitting Ogbia and Nembe local government area communities have been waiting for the completion of the road since its initiation in 1940.

The project was completed through a collaborative effort between the Federal Government, the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC), and the Bayelsa State Government. The latter contributed N3 billion to revive the project after it was stalled for six years.

Tinubu, represented by the Minister of Niger Delta Development, Abubakar Momoh, commended the NDDC for its dedication to the project.
