Then came the construction of Esuk Utang Road, which serves as a main route for oil transporters and producers. This is a major road in Calabar that has been abandoned for years and has caused a lot of accidents and collisions between trucks, and abandoned trucks have been left here.

Next was the construction and rehabilitation of the NPA/Depo road to enable better transportation for goods, knowing that trucks and other residential areas extend to this road. In addition, the rehabilitation and construction of Calabar metropolis roads, which have been going on in several locations in the state capital, such as Murtalamuhamed Highway, Etagbor,IBB, Marian, and streets around Calabar, etc.

The other senatorial districts were not left behind, Hon. Pius Edet assured. Communities in the North and the Central have seen urgent rehabilitation of roads.

He stressed that it was pertinent that work has to start first in Calabar, being the capital city and a home where all visitors enter before entering every district. Hon. Pius clearly stated that all projects in the state are officially sponsored by the state government.

On this note, all government left-over projects will be attended to because they were all constructed with our money and must be completed for the benefit of Cross Riverians.
