By Margaret John, House of Assembly Correspondent

The Cross River State House of Assembly has began in earnest, kicking off with a tour to the Ayade Industrial Park.

The tour took place after a brief plenary session on Tuesday, where a majority of the House went to oversee the various State projects.

Among the sites visited where the Garment Factory, Seed and Seedlings factory, Cross River State Pharmaceutical Factory and Mainland Oil and Gas Company.

Speaking on the purpose of the tour, the Speaker of the House, Hon. Eteng Williams posited that it was a means for members of the 9th Assembly to familiarize with the State projects.

“It is the first time we are having this tour as the 9th Assembly. It gives us the opportunity to interface with the workers and staff and it helps us deliberate on the running of the factories. It is also for us to get on the same page with the Executive and to let the members get a feel of what is going on and make recommendations where necessary.” He said.

Also, addressing the state of the factories, the Speaker commended the level of work going on in the facilities, stating, “It gives us the impression that Cross River is moving to the next level.”

He further encouraged Cross Riverians to patronize the products made in the State in order to curb excess importation.
