Frontline lawyer, Human Rights Activist and APC chieftain, Barrister Okoi Obono Obla who has been one of the most ardent critic of Governor Ayade’s ongoing 260km Super Highway from Calabar to Obudu has made a U-turn and thrown his support behind the project.

Obla who arrived Calabar with President Buhari yesterday for the ground breaking ceremony of the project by the President, eulogized Ayade and described the road as a revolutionary project which is borne out of ingenious foresightedness by the Governor.

In a post on his facebook timeline, Chief Obla said: “Great and exceedingly remarkable things are happening to Cross River State under the leadership of Governor Ben Ayade in a Federal Government under the leadership of the dogged and indefatigable President Muhammadu Buhari!

“Yesterday, the President was in Obun Village in Netim Clan, Akamkpa Local Government Area to flag off construction of a Super Highway that will connect the South East, North Central and North East from the Atlantic Ocean.

“Since the feared incursion into the Cross River National Park has been addressed, I totally support it. It is a revolutionary project which is borne out of ingenious foresightedness!

Obla commended the President for reaffirming his bond with Cross River State and called on Cross Riverians to continue to support his administration’s effort in rebuilding the country.

“I call on our people to continue to support the President and the Governor. Yesterday, President Buhari, again reaffirmed his bond with us when he pledged support for the super highway project. As a young officer in the Army during the civil war, Captain Buhari fought in Gakem, Obudu, Ogoja and Ikom. He became close to one of our greatest leaders, Chief I. I. Murphy of blessed memory. President Buhari loves us.” He wrote.
