The contractor handling the renovation of the new cafeteria in Cross River University of Technology (CRUTECH), has been directed to deliver on the project before the first 100 days of the life of the present administration led by Senator Benedict Ayade.

The Deputy Governor, Professor Ivara Esu gave this directive while inspecting the project located in the Calabar campus of the institution where he also met with the institution’s management team, warning them that the present administration was not one which sits in the office without physical inspection of projects.

He tasked them to take charge of the project and expressed disappointment over the pace of the job.”Vice chancellor I want you to take charge of this project in terms of supervision, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Special Projects is here but he may have his hands full so take charge.” he said before adding that “I don’t understand what is delaying it, I know it is not constrained by funds as it is been drawn from the reserve fund, we need it on the first 100 days in office”

The representative of the main contractor, Crystal Brioni Construction stressed that the modifications from ‘end users’ was what has been delaying the project which he said was more than three times what the University of Calabar has and promised that the main structure will be delivered in 60 to 80 days.

Earlier the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Professor Anthony Owan Enoh expressed optimism that the administration will be a favorable one for the institution which he said was evident in the visit early into the life of the present government.

  • I hope this is a change in administration and we are looking forward for which is now manifesting in CRS. I believe these two professors and Govnrs with their wealth of knowledge and zeal to impact positive meaningful things to life of cross riverians, It is good as the deputy has visit the CRUTECH. Let the VC put other things in place especially Calabar campus. Most faulty/Depts have no enough lecture rooms for student. No resting hall for students to relax for next lecture hours. Kudos to prof visit.
