The Cross River State Government has reiterated its commitment to remain transparent and committed to the electorates saying it will stop at nothing to achieve building eighteen new cities across the 18 local government areas of the State.

The state also gave assurances that it will abide strictly by the Public Private Partnership (PPP) frame work to ensure that the goal of establishing eighteen new cities across the State is actualized.

This position was made known by the Secretary of the New Cities Development Board, Mr. Oyube Attoe while speaking to journalists in Calabar, the State capital.

According to him, “Our mandate is to facilitate the implementation of the new cities master plan; we were established to build a quality frame work for Cross River State, from adoption to implementation. We have done the ground breaking for the new city in Tinapa; it’s a new model and a novel idea which we all must encourage.

“The plan is to have eighteen new cities in each local government but in the wisdom of the Chairman of the Board we should start with three new cities, one in each senatorial district. For transparency and accountability sake in all our projects we will adopt and follow the PPP model.

“We will develop cities where if you live and work there, you do not need to go out; everything you need is within you just like Gwarinpa in Abuja”.

He maintained that, “This is a major project that from stage one to last will boost the economy of the State considering the volume of work force needed and when completed, other huge employment opportunities will open from the various schools, hospitals, offices, hotels, and markets that will need human work force”.

In conclusion, he beckoned on all and sundry to support the New Cities Development Board and the Ministry to achieve their mandate.

  • What about making the existing towns and villages habitable. This nothing but another white elephant scheme (aka Tinapa No. 2). Building or constructing new cities should never a government endeavor where all the existing towns lack basic infrastructure (i.e. electricity, roads, water, waste management systems, etc.)
