The Commissioner for Special Duties, Rt. Hon. Okpolupm Etteh, has expressed hope that full-scale operation of the Four-Point by Sheraton Hotel, one of the major projects under his Ministry, will commence in September 2019.
Rt. Hon. Etteh, who said he was satisfied with the pace and quality of work done at the facility, made this known on Thursday in Ikot Ekpene during an on-the-spot assessment of the project.
