The summit hills is an expansive real estate developed by the Senator Liyel Imoke’s administration.
It consists of the Calabar International Convention Center, golf course, specialist hospital and a golf estate which sought to bring life to the USD470 million Tinapa premier business and leisure resort.
Both facilities are connected by a 1.2 kilometer monorail network which is currently moribund due to low patronage and theft of infrastructure.
It was renamed the Senator Liyel Imoke hills by Mr. Ayade during the Cross River at 50 celebration in May 2017.
