The Cross River State Governor, Prof. Ben Ayade, has inaugurated the construction of a 134-kilometre Mfom-Okpoma-Imaje-Bekwarra-Obudu-Obanliku Dual Carriage Road, the Super-Highway.
According to a statement by the state government, the construction of the road is aimed at re-energizing and increasing access to the Obudu Ranch Resort as well as the transportation of farm produce to the markets.
“The construction of the federal road, which will traverse the five local government areas that constitute the Northern Senatorial District of the state, is valued at N31bn and it is expected to be completed in 30 months,” the statement read in part.
Ayade, who was represented by his deputy, Prof. Ivara Esu, at the ceremony, said, “This marks the beginning of a new journey in the history of the Northern Senatorial District, which for 45 years has been denied the luxury of driving on good roads occasioned by the challenges of the times and circumstances not occasioned by our people.
“People are totally disconnected from the point of mercantile, social interactions and indeed all prospects that gives people dignity. Our economic life is completely gone, our large farms that fed the entire South-South and South-East is gone. Our educational institutions and all that united us have gone as a result of perpetual neglect and bad roads, but God has brought us again to take our destiny into our hands that we shall be reconnected and be united.”
