The Cross-River State Government has appealed to the Federal Government to speed up processes that will bring about the immediate commencement of construction work on its proposed Bakassi Deep Seaport and the 275 kilometres superhighway projects.
The state governor, Professor Ben Ayade made the appeal on Wednesday in Calabar, the State capital, when he received the Chairman and members of the Bakassi Deep Seaport Inter-Ministerial Steering Committee in the company of the project Transaction Financial Advisor prior to their 3-Day fact-finding mission to the state.
While addressing the team, the governor lamented over the current financial status of the state following the loss of its oil wells.
He believes the immediate execution of the dream projects will not only boost the state’s economic status but also attract foreign earnings to the country.
The governor, therefore, urged the group to live up to expectations in the delivery of the task which according to him, will be beneficial not only to this generation but generations yet unborn.
