The Federal Ministry of Environment minutes ago handed the final copy of the approved Environmental Impact Assessment report to the Cross River State government, signaling what the governor said will be immediate return to site to commence work.

The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Dr. Bukar Hassan, handed the approved EIA report to the Deputy Governor of Cross River state, Professor Ivara Esu, who represented his boss, in Abuja with assurances that the federal government will not renege on its promise to support the state in ensuring the succesful completion of the project.

While reacting to the development, an elated governor Ayade told CrossRiverWatch that he was greatful to his detractors who actually propelled the government to work harder in order to achieve the feat.

“I want to use this opportunity to congratulate Cross Riverians and indeed all the detractors of the super highway for their opposition to the project, which actually propelled us to work harder to achieve this.

“For those who have been worried about where the money will come from, I have insisted repeatedly that that has been taken care of. I want to assure Cross Riverians that equipment is returning to site and work will commence immediately as earlier planned.

“We give all thanks to God and to all Cross Riverians who abided with us in prayer and assure everyone that we will continue to work hard to achieve our set goals regardless of the obstacles.” the governor said.

  • We give God d grace! Congrats his Excellency!

  • Wow! I am so happy that finally cross river can state can continue with its signature projects..

  • In my opinion the Approval is Kangaroo one, as critical look at the 4th version of the SuperHighway EIA report, there are some questions unanswered.
    The diverted/alternative route is still in Ukpong Forest Reserve and this has a lot of implication, issues if BAP has not been properly addressed and FPIC as well.
    More details will come.

  • We sincerely thank God for everything. Start the work immediately to enable you finish it within your eight years tenure, please.
