The Federal Government of Nigeria has given approval to the Cross River State Government to commence full work on the proposed Bakassi deep seaport.

The disclosure was made recently by the State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mrs. Rosemary Archibong.

Mrs. Rosemary asked all Cross Riverians to have an open mind about the project and that at the Government end all hands are on deck to bring the project to life.

The Commissioner also stated that the deep seaport in Bakassi is not in competition with the Calabar port saying that they are to complement each other, that the deep seaport will not stop the Government from pursuing the dredging of the Calabar port.

Her words, “The Calabar port will not be as deep as the Bakassi seaport, we are looking for a very deep sea port and Bakassi has presented itself and we are looking at it as a natural environment for us to tap from, the sea is there”.

The Commissioner went on to say that, “The fact also that Bakassi has been deprived for no fault of theirs, the people have been impoverished, sent out of their natural homes, these things should be taken into consideration if they have a natural gift of the sea which has that advantage of depth of about 6 meters”.

Concluding, Mrs. Archibong said, “The Calabar port dredging is coming to pass and it is Federal, there is nothing wrong in having two ports. One a very deep port that will help bring what we call grandmother ships that will help to open Cross River State to the entire world”.
