Ayade re­pairs 6 fed­eral roads

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Eyo Charles, Cal­abar

Gov­er­nor Ben Ayade of Cross River State has di­rected that six fed­eral roads in parts of the state which are in bad state should be re­ha­bil­i­tated.

He said he had to give the di­rec­tive be­cause he hated the ordeal Nige­ri­ans were pass­ing through on those roads.

The fed­eral roads in­clude the Cal­abar - Ikom and Cal­abar - Itu fed­eral high­ways where in­ter­ven­tion jobs are on. A Di­rec­tor in the state Min­istry of Works, Engr. God­win Akeke, said al­though the state was be­ing owed over N20 bil­lion spent on sim­i­lar in­ter­ven­tions on fed­eral roads by past ad­min­is­tra­tions, the state could not be de­terred from do­ing the need­ful. He how­ever ap­pealed to the Fed­eral Govern­ment not only to pay the debt but to fix all its bad roads.
