In keeping with his campaign promises of connecting different parts of the state by roads, the Governor of Cross River State, Senator Bassey Otu, has flagged off 29.87-kilometre road construction projects to re-connect communities in Akamkpa local government area of Cross River State.

Speaking at the flag-off ceremony of the 29.87-kilometre Oban-Nsan Road, Governor Bassey Otu ably represented by the Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Hon. Ankpo Pius Edet, said his administration is committed to the promise made during his campaign and urged the people to exercise patience as every part of the State will benefit from his administration.

He reaffirmed his commitment to selecting and undertaking projects primarily on the basis of impact and benefits to the generality of the people, rather than satisfying and serving individual’s interest.

Governor Otu also noted that he was moved by the sad stories of the communities due to bad and inaccessible roads, and assured that such sad tales will become history within the shortest time.

He stressed that the Oban-Nsan road projects had no political motivation but a pointer to his administration’s sensitivity to the plight of the people, especially the women and children who have been exposed to avoidable risk by using the collapsed road.

According to him, “We didn’t come to do this project based on political reasons. It is God who directs the government on this road project, not any politician.

“We want to thank our brother, Hon Ankpo Pius Edet, Honorable Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure who has used his God-given talents to attract this project here.

“If you know this man, he is a critic in every sense, but I don’t have a problem with criticism, so far it’s very constructive and will bring good to the people, not just abusing the government.

“We believe that by the Grace of God, all that will cease,” he said.
