The Cross River State House of Assembly has directed the Special Adviser, Governor’s Office, Nzan Ogbe, to give the total cost of the Calabar International Convention Centre.

The directive was contained in the adopted resolutions of the House Committee on Finance and Appropriation on the 2013 State Appropriation Bill.

It mandated the Special Adviser to within 60 days forward the document showing liabilities and obligations of all parties involved in the project.

The government had begun the building of the Convention Centre, which is expected to have a 200-room four-star hotel, 5,000-sitting capacity conference centre, 100-bed multipurpose hospital, 284 housing units, 18-hole golf course, parking space for 800 cars and many other facilities.

The House decried the fact that although the project has reached an advanced stage, there is no clear idea of the cost.
The House said knowing this would help in planning and projection of cost benefit analysis.
