Weeks after CrossRiverWatch investigation revealed that after budgeting ₦42 billion, Cross River Government resorted to an obscure company for the construction of spaghetti flyover, rehabilitation and dualization of Calabar-Odukpani highway, the State Governor, Sen. Ben Ayade has inspected the site.
Governor Ayade visited the site a day before presenting the State’s 2022 budget of ₦276 billion christened “Conjugated Agglutination” to the House of Assembly.
While presenting the budget, Ayade noted that he is determined to finish the project which is still far from completion and make Cross River better again.
This newspaper had investigated how the project has remained a top secret while commuters awaits a miracle.
