Ayade to Resume Work on Super High Way, As FG gives an Approving Nod

|Ukorebi Esien|30 June, 2017|

The Federal Ministry of Environment has finally handed over the approved copy of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report carried out on the proposed supper High Way to the Cross River State government.

The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Dr. Bukar Hassan, who handed over the approved EIA report to the Deputy Governor of Cross River state, Professor Ivara Esu, who represented the Governor, in Abuja assured the State that the federal government will not renege on its promise to support the state in ensuring the successful completion of the project.

Reacting to the development, an obviously excited Ayade told CrossRiverWatch that he was grateful to his detractors who actually propelled the government to work harder in order to achieve the feat.

“I want to use this opportunity to congratulate Cross Riverians and indeed all the detractors of the super highway for their opposition to the project, which actually propelled us to work harder to achieve this.

“For those who have been worried about where the money will come from, I have insisted repeatedly  that that has been taken care of. I want to assure Cross Riverians that equipment is returning to site and work will commence immediately as earlier planned.

“We give all thanks to God and to all Cross Riverians who abided with us in prayer and assure everyone that we will continue to work hard to achieve our set goals regardless of the obstacles.” the governor said.
