This follows the flagging off of 11km Adiabo-Ikoneto Road, which has been abandoned for 30 years, since the military regime of Late Gen. Sani Abacha.

“This road has been a vision and dream. It gave me a lot of pain when work on this project stopped a few decades ago and looked like its completion would never happen. But I never knew that God was going to use me to get this project to fruition.

“We know what infrastructure does to every community. We are making an effort to take infrastructure to all nooks and crannies in the state. What we are doing here, we are also doing in Calabar; in the Central District, and the Northern Senatorial District. We are not leaving any locality out of it. We have shared the resources in a way and manner that is balanced so that our aggregate growth as a state can come off structurally,” Governor Otu said.

He promised that his Ministry would provide the professional supervision of the project to be completed at the stipulated 18-month period.
