The Cross River Governor, Sen. Bassey Edet Otu has ordered the reopening of the Marina Resort which was shut down over a cruise boat mishap on June 24, 2023, that involved 14 medical students with three feared dead and 11 rescued.

In another development, he also lifted the ban on scrap metal activities which was due to the vandalisation of infrastructures.
