Following the approval of the Environmental Impact Assessment for the 260km Cross River Superhighway, Governor Ben Ayade has directed that all contractors handling the project should return to site within the next one week.

Work on the Superhighway has been stalled following the inability of the state government to get the nod of the Federal Ministry of Environment for the impact assessment.

But that hurdle was toppled today after the final approval for the EIA was handed over to the state Deputy Governor, Professor Ivara Esu by Bukar Hassan, the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Environment, in Abuja

Mr. Eric Akpo, the Special Adviser, Technical, to the governor, said in a post on his facebook timeline earlier today that:

“The Governor of Cross River state has directed that all those contractors engaged (on) the Superhigway project return to site within one (1) week of this announcement.

“This is following the approval of the EIA for the superhighway which was granted today in Abuja.”

Governor Ayade had earlier told CrossRiverWatch that contractors will return to work immediately and thanked the people of the state for their steadfastness and abiding prayers for the project.
