The Managing Director of John Deere Construction and Forestry, Mr. Jeff Kraft has assured Cross Riverians of earnest commencement of work at site of Ayade’s tourist centre, Calas Vegas in the next four to five months.

“We are also here to ensure that we work in line with the Governor’s plan to industrialize agriculture in the market and also develop sites like this one behind us for tourism.” He said.
Speaking also on how soon construction will commence, he said “We are finalizing negotiation with the Governor as we speak, and we are really confident that if successful, in four to five months the equipments will be here.”
Assuring Cross Riverians and Nigerians at large of using quality materials, he also averred that workers will be trained to operate the machines, even as he added that “monitoring and evaluation team will be put in place to ensure that only quality services is delivered to the State.”
Aside the foreign engineers from Singapore Asia, the meeting also had in attendance former Attorney General of Cross River State and PDP member, Barrister Nella Andem Rabana.
