Road to Cameroon to get upgrade

08 May 2014, 21:20

Abuja - Cross River State Government has pledged to rehabilitate the road linking Nigeria and Cameroon which it hopes would promote socio-economic relationship between communities in both countries.

Governor Lyle Imoke, speaking at Nyaje Village, Akamkpa Local Government Area of the state, lamented the deplorable condition of the road which stretches from Calabar through Ekang to Manfe in Cameroon.

The governor noted that though the area was endowed with rich natural and human resources but these could not be fully exploited due to lack of an access road.

The setback also deterred farmers from conveying their agricultural produce to urban areas.

Imoke promised to effect repairs of the failed portions of the road.

He assured that this would be undertaken before the end of the present administration.

Meanwhile, the governor reiterated the state's commitment to electrify its remotest area including the community, while assuring that he will liaise with GSM service providers to ensure that the community has access to telephone.
