The World Bank and European Union (EU)-assisted State Employment and Expenditure For Results (SEEFOR) project in Bayelsa State has been applauded for ensuring transparency, accountability in initiating and completing most of the projects. So, far the Bayelsa SEEFOR has constructed 406 roads and empowered 17,665 residents across the eight councils since its inception in June 2013. He said that with a target of 137 concrete roads to benefit schools, health facilities and markets, the Bayelsa SEEFOR constructed 406, which tripled the expectation of partners of the project. For ensuring transparency and accountability, Dr. Onu appealed to the World Bank and EU to extend the SEEFOR programme in the state beyond the terminal date. Also to ensure the sustainability of the infrastructure constructed by SEEFOR, Adogu said at the end of the project, the relevant ministries of the state government would be engaged.
