The Speaker of Cross River State House of Assembly, Hon John Gaul Lebo has said that the signature projects being embarked upon by the Ayade’s administration would help to boost trade and commerce in the country.

Gaul Lebo made the remarks while fielding questions from newsmen during the President Buhari’s visit to Calabar today to perform the ground breaking ceremony for the construction of 260km super highway.

The Speaker while commending the President for identifying with the Ayade’s signature project which he asserted would trigger development even beyond the state, said that the President’s commitment was an indication of the importance the Presidency attached to the project and the faith in Governor Ayade’s capacity to deliver.

He maintained that the Superhighway would open vista of opportunities for investment, employment, trade and commerce to thrive not only in Cross River but across the country with its spiral effect, adding that the nation’s economy would equally be boosted through the signature projects which include the Superhighway and the deep sea port.

The Speaker also said that the deep seaport when completed would help to decongest the over congested Lagos seaports as well as create alternative opportunities for importers and exporters within the South- South and South East regions and even up to the North.

This according to him would be further engendered by the super highway which would create an evacuation corridor for goods and cargos.

He urged Nigerians particularly Cross Riverians to take advantage of the opportunities that would come along with the construction of the superhighway, submitting that the people, the state and its economy stand to gain from the project when completed.
